Out of the 4 tourist attractions in Mandalay, the Amarapura aka 'City of Immortality' is one that should not be missed. Normally, you could get a bargain with motorbike, but I aimed for the classic - the blue taxi. The blue taxi will be eliminated soon since it is over 40 year old. I took it, expensive, but for the experience. My driver is another nicest guy, he suggested me to go there at 5am. I realized why when I arrived there. There are practically only 2 visitors - me and another guy, with all the rest of the locals. It was so nice, to catch the sunrise before all the tourists arrived.

For the monastry, to see >1000 of monks offering, it was one of kind of experience. There are monks and nuns that as young as 5 year old to any age. I don't like Mandalay, but I love U Bein bridge.
