Meet a driver at your hotel in Mandalay for the trip to Mahamuni Pagoda, among Myanmar’s most significant Buddhist pilgrimage sites. From there, continue to a series of local workshops, where craftsmen create stone Buddha images, gold leaf, puppets, and wood carvings.
You’ll have free time to purchase lunch at a local restaurant before heading to the Mandalay Royal Palace and Golden Palace Monastery, an atmospheric spot that gives a fascinating glimpse into the heyday of the old palace.
Finally, see Kuthodaw Pagoda, a stupa that claims “the world’s largest book,” and head to the top of Mandalay Hill to catch a classic Mandalay sunset. This day of exploring Mandalay concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
