Myanmar (Burma) - Mandalay & Around (Chapter)
This is the Mandalay & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Myanmar (Burma) guidebook.
The name Mandalay conjures up images of Asia at its most traditional and timeless. While the initial reality can be an anti-climax, Mandalay is Myanmar’s cultural capital and it’s easy to escape into neighbourhoods full of craft workshops and tree-shaded monasteries. And as the main transport hub for the north, it offers a panoply of easy day-trips.
