Take a day trip to the old capitals Feb 03, 2017
While you are in Mandalay most tourists will want to take a tour of the ancient capitals and some rent bicycles, some rent motorbikes, some go on bus tours but the best way is to hire a taxi. The owner of our guest house arranged for the driver to pick us up in hos taxi at 8 and we returned at 6 pm. The price for this was 40,000 kyat and there were 5 of us. What a wonderful day for the bargain price of 8,000 kyat each, about $6.

You can ask the driver to stop at certain places or miss a few out but this is how our day worked out. This is a MUST DO when you are in Mandalay.

1 A quick look at the stone carvers

2 30 minutes at Mahamuni Paya

3 30 minutes at a traditional silk weaving factory and nearby outlets

4 1 hour at Maha Gandayon Kyaung to see the monks line up for breakfast

5 3 temples on Sagaing Hill

6 Lunch by the river

7 Cross the river and 2.30 min horse and cart ride to explore Inwa

8 90 minutes at U Bien bridge where we crossed to the other side and then caught the sunset on the bridge.
