Full description
Begin your morning with a pickup from your hotel in Mandalay and set off to see gold leaf manufacturers and learn about the industry. Afterward, visit Mahamuni Pagoda and see its 13-feet tall seated Buddha, a nationally celebrated image believed to be approximately 2000 years old. From the pagoda, learn more about the different industries that help Mandalay thrive like wood carving and jade. Explore the jade market and its cramped, but vibrant walkways. Escape the hustle and bustle and go to Shwe In Bin Monastery, a place for quiet meditation in Mandalay. Spend more time in serenity at the Eindawya Pagoda, a Buddhist stupa. Learn about the pagoda's long and interesting history before breaking for lunch at about 12:00 PM. After lunch, visit and marvel at the Skinny Buddha structure.  Move on to the Royal Palace, a complex comprised of more than 40 timber buildings. After spending time at the palace complex, spend the rest of the afternoon visiting various monasteries and pagodas such as the Shwenandaw Monastery, famous for its gilded jataka scenes, Atumashi Monastery, the Kuthodaw Pagoda, Sandarmuni Pagoda, and Kusinara Pagoda. End your Mandalay sightseeing tour at Mandalay Hill for its viewpoint featuring stunning views of the surrounding landscape.

I had an amazing day provided by Royal Gold Myanmar. My guide picked me at my hotel in Mandalay and took me to all the main attractions. Along the way he could explain a bit more of Myanmar habits and culture. WE
