The name ‘Mandalay’ is perhaps the most evocative of any destination in Myanmar, mainly due to the famous poem by Rudyard Kipling. If you take the time to explore, there is much to be enjoyed, including many temples, monasteries and markets, as well as great street food and panoramic views from Mandalay Hill. Compared to the many ancient capitals scattered around the country, Mandalay is in fact a relatively new city, having been built in 1857 when King Mindon was trying to re-establish Burmese prestige after the country’s defeat in the Second Anglo-Burmese War. Mandalay is the economical hub of upper Myanmar and considered the center of Burmese culture.
