Mandalay Travel Guide, Mandalay, Myanmar (B)

Mandalay is an important “link” in Myanmar’s well-trodden touristic triangle and for a good reason.

Mandalay exudes a charm not seen elsewhere in the country. It certainly lives up to its reputation as the cultural centre of Myanmar. Mandalay is not only vainly charming, it is also less chaotic and less congested than Yangon and has a unique architecture. And thanks to a structured numbering system for streets, getting around is easy.
