Our guide was very informative and helpful

, mars 2017

Our guide was top notch as was the driver, no issues or problem with them. Our lunch was tasty at the Golden Palace. We found some of the sites to be disappointing as described below.

Mandalay Palace

As part of our day tour in Mandalay we had a stop at the Mandalay Palace. While the original palace was destroyed during WWII, the Myanmar government has reconstructed a facsimile of what the palace looked like. Our guide provided some interesting historical context for the palace which was useful. Most of the buildings are empty shells. The palace is on the grounds of a military base.

Shwenandaw Kyaung or Golden Palace Monastery

One of the more interesting stops on our day tour of Mandalay. The Shwenandaw Kyaung Monastery is the only surviving original building from the Mandalay palace. Made entirely of teak and carved inside and out with figures and symbols of Buddhist mythology the building is quite beautiful even with the wearing by the weather. This stop is well worth going to while in Mandalay.

Mandalay Hill

As part of our Mandalay day tour we did end up at Mandalay Hill for sunset. There is a large crowd of fellow tourist waiting for the sunset as well. While you can see quite far in the distance, it was hazy and not as spectacular as many places I have been for a sunset view. We left before the sun was fully down.

Kuthodaw and Sandamuni Pagodas

As part of our day tour of Mandalay Kuthodaw and the worlds largest book written on stone tablets was included in the itinerary. The stone slabs are engraved with the text from the 15 books of the Buddhist Tripitake. Each stone page is covered by a small building with gates protecting the stone tablets from wayward tourists. Interesting historical site worth a short visit.

Mahamuni Paya One of my least favorites in Mandalay

The Buddha at Mahamuni Paya comes highly rated as a must see in Mandalay and while the temple complex has its beauty, and there are some historical objects in the complex that I enjoyed seeing like the Khmer bronzes, the tons of gold added by gold leaf to the main statue of Buddha just seems obscene and not spiritual. All of the shops and money changers as well as the way women are treated at the temple took away from the spiritual nature of such a site. I may be the only one who feels this way but I felt no spirituality at Mahamuni Paya.

U Bein Bridge over Taungthaman Lake

While coming highly recommend as a must see stop in Mandalay we found the U Bein Bridge over Taungthaman Lake to be overrated. It is a nice walk, our guide provided us with historical information, and it is fascinating to see old teak pilings still in use, most of the bridge surface, railing and some of the piles are not original teak wood and concrete is now mixed in with the original teak pilings. This is to be expected after all even teak doesnt last forever. It was more interesting to see the farmers working their fields in the lake bed we were there in the dry season and the lake had shrunk quite a bit, the ducks swimming and running to be feed, and the deep fried field mice see photo. Supposedly the sunset can be quite beautiful.

Maha Gandhayon Kyaung Monastery

This stop was on our day tour of Mandalay. Known for the feeding of the monks this is one stop on our tour that I could have done without. While it was interesting to see the kitchen where the food is cooked, I did not wait around to watch the monks get feed in some way it seems degrading to put the monks on parade. The only part of this stop I enjoyed was seeing a cat, who had been chased by temple dogs, get back at one of the dogs by swatting him with it paw.

Best tour ever in my life. Fantastic guide and driver. Super nice V6 Toyota Van. Tour guide self trained in English and pretty much the single person we could have a discussion with during our 3 week stay in Burma. Great Guide. Tour exactly as described plus more. Also stopped when we saw something interesting on the road, like a wedding or parade. Highly recomended

We went with Soe, and enjoyed his input and the time. We found his choice of western restaurant for lunch pretty bland, but he made up for it with a visit at the end to a local tea house. The car and driver were very good. It's likely we could have done the trip for maybe half the price with a local taxi driver, but Soe's English was probably better.
