Our tour guide Papa was friendly and very knowledgeable about her city. We could not have seen Mandalay without her. I couldn't believe we covered so much history in one day! She was an amazing guide. Thank you Papa.
We met our guide Popa with a driver at the hotel at 8am as advised. She was friendly, well spoken and informative. She had taken on board our request to see the U-Bein bridge which was magnificent. We saw gold leaf crafting, temples, stupas, the Palace, lacquer ware, various areas of Mandalay and its markets. Popa explained about the way of life for local people. We had a good lunch at a local restaurant. We were extremely lucky to see a 'coming of age' celebration which was very colourful. Finally, we watched the sunset from Mandalay Hill. We arrived back at the hotel tired but well informed.
