A Trip To Myanmar - Mandalay - Road to Mandalay

The last stop on our tour through Myanmar was Mandalay. The second biggest city in Myanmar and well known for its holy Mandalay Hill and a big King’s Palace.

Therefore, we booked tickets for an overnight bus from Yangon to Bagan and we were hoping for a safe ride and at least some sleep.

A Trip to Myanmar - Yangon - Completed by golden pagodas and contaminated food

Straight from Siem Reap in Cambodia we went to the old capital of Myanmar — Yangon. Myanmar opened up for international visitors just recently and is not yet on the to-do list of the usual South East Asia tourist (give it one or two more years!).
