This major gateway in Northern Myanmar is worth at least a day tour to see the Mandalay Fort, the last royal palace of the last Burmese monarchy. And, some of the country’s most sacred Buddhist sites including the Mahamuni Buddha Temple and Mandalay Hill.

Extend your visit with a nice excursion to the four ancient cities of Mingun, Sagaing, Amarapura, and Innwa.

Mandalay along with Yangon are the main international gateways to Myanmar. By land, buses and trains are available from major tourist spots. Land travel to Mandalay takes around 9 hours from Yangon, 6 hours from Bagan & 8 hours from Inle Lake.
