Browse Our Mandalay Tours

Mandalay proudly sits in the geographical epicenter of Myanmar. This former imperial city conjures romantic images of ornate palaces, slow boats plying the Irrawaddy River, colonial buildings and serene pagodas. Once a bustling center of trade, Mandalay is still renowned as the nation’s most pedigreed artisan hub, and today much of Myanmar’s best-known arts and crafts are created here, in tiny, tumble-down workshops. On a Mandalay tour, you’re sure to see world-renowned sites such as U Bein Bridge and Kuthodaw Pagoda (also known as the world’s largest book), but you’ll also be treated to surprising local encounters at crowded tea shops and historical neighborhoods.

The unique flavors of Burmese cuisine draw curious foodies to Myanmar, and Mandalay’s reputation for mouthwatering regional specialties is a large part of the draw. On a Mandalay tour, you’ll sample Shan noodles, rich curries and street food.

SPIRITUAL CULTURE

Mandalay is famed as one of Myanmar’s most spiritual cities. Members of the city’s large monastic population can be visited at sprawling monasteries and historical pagodas, or simply spotted meandering throughout the city.

IRRAWADDY RIVER

Located on the fertile banks of the Irrawaddy River, Mandalay offers gorgeous river views, slow boat cruises and expansive views across the water. Life along the river is an important part of Burmese culture, and there is much to learn here.

RICH HISTORY

King Mindon established Mandalay as his capital city in 1857. Mandalay was to become Burma’s last royal capital before the administration of the British. Today, artifacts of Mandalay’s glorious past remain scattered throughout the city.
