Half Day Mandalay City Tour
Explore the city of Mandalay with a local guide on this half day tour, taking you to highlights including Mandalay Hill, the 'world's largest book' and the Golden Palace Monastery.
The tour begins in the former royal capital of Mandalay with an ascent up Mandalay Hill. At 240 metres, the hill is the city's highest vantage point, offering fantastic views over the surrounding countryside, Irrawaddy River and the city centre. At its base lies the Shwenandaw (or Golden Palace) Monastery known for its intricate wood carvings and the Kyauktawgyi Pagoda, home to a grand marble Buddha. Also make a visit to the nearby Kuthodaw Pagoda, Burma's first UNESCO Heritage Site consisting over more than 700 marble slabs inscribed with Buddhist teachings, earning its title of the 'world's largest book'.
