Today you’ll arrive in the city of Mandalay, most likely by plane from Yangon. On arrival, a driver will be waiting to take you to your hotel. Your first impressions of Mandalay might be that it isn’t as pretty as other places in Myanmar but you do not have to go far to find golden temples and the former palace. Your hotel is centrally located in the heart of the city. The decor is truly something to behold, from gold-leaf ceilings to rich teak wood flooring and sumptuously rich touches throughout.
