Full description
Start your Mandalay adventure by meeting your guide in your hotel. After a short meet and greet you will be taken to the first stop on your tour of this bustling city.  Take a trip to the local tea shop to start the day. Here you will have the ability to see the varieties of tea that exist, the various different kinds of cuisine and learn about what Burmese locals typically have for breakfast.  Next, visit Maha Myat Muni Pagoda, a Buddhist temple and major pilgrimage site of Mandalay. It is highly-venerated in Burma and central to many people's lives, as it is seen as an expression of representing the Buddha's life. Mandalay is a major arts and crafts center. Therefore you will also visit a Kalaga tapestry craftsmen shop, located near Maha Myat Muni Pagoda. Continue your sightseeing tour to the Golden Palace Monastery, a spectacular example of traditional Burmese wood work. Witness the Kuthodaw Pagoda, the world's largest book made of 729 marble slabs, on which the entire Theravada Buddhist Pali Canon is inscribed. Finish your day with a scenic walk up to Mandalay hill to see a picturesque sunset. Once finished your guide will take you back to your accommodation in Mandalay.

A really nice and interesting tour with a super nice and informative guide. He always responded to our requests and questions and brought us through Mandalay in the best possible way. What I also loved about all the activities is the absolute punctuality, friendliness and the knowledge of the guides.
