Mandalay holidays

Located on the wide bend of the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River, Mandalay is Burma’s second biggest city and the last royal capital before the British took over and the royal family was forced to flee to India. The city’s name is named after nearby Mandalay Hill, one of its main tourist attractions. Throughout the colonial years, Mandalay was the centre of Burmese culture and Buddhist learning and there are still many temples and monastic schools in and around the city which draw pilgrims and visitors from all over the world. The ancient capitals of Inwa (Ava) and Amarapura a short drive from the city provide a glimpse into Burma’s majestic past.
