As the last royal capital of monarchy in Myanmar, Mandalay still retains rich tradition, culture and spiritual splendor.

This comprehensive day tour is a perfect introduction of the sights and the sounds of this city including the most well- revered religious monuments of Mahamuni pagoda, the Shwenandaw Monastery – a fine example of traditional Myanmar wooden monastery, the world’s largest book made of marble and handicraft workshops. End of the day by watching amazing sunset over the Irrawaddy River.


Meet up with your guide and driver today at your hotel then begin your sightseeing tour of Mandalay with a visit to Mahamuni Pagoda. This pagoda is home to one of the country’s most revered Buddha images which, over the years, have been covered with gold leaf giving it an almost ‘lumpy’ texture. Mandalay is well known for its skilled craftsmen and as you tour traditional workshops, you will learn more about the city’s cottage industries.  Observe the production of wood carvings, kalaga tapestries, and gold-leaf where the techniques remained unchanged from those used centuries ago to craft items for the Royal Court.

This afternoon, your tour continues to Kuthodaw Pagoda, whose 729 marble stone slabs of Buddhist scriptures have earned it the title ‘World’s Biggest Book’. Continue to Shwenandaw Monastery, the only remaining building from the 19th century Royal Palace. This grand teak building is known for its exquisite woodcarving. Head to the top of Mandalay Hill as the sun begins to set to enjoy magnificent views of the city and Irrawaddy River. Head to your hotel
