We stayed at the Royal Guesthouse which was great value at six dollars per night for bed and breakfast. On our first day we joined up with Mark and Kim, a Dutch couple we met up with on the previous days journey. We visited the main sights in the city which included a couple of teak monasteries, two palaces, a few pagodas and a walk up Mandalay Hill.
The following day the four of us and a Hungarian called Stephen hired a taxi and driver for the day and went to the three ancient cities of Sagaing, Inwa and Amarapura. On our last day we visited the fourth ancient city of Mingun which we reached by a nice boat journey up the river.
