Mandalay is an Irrawaddy River cruise port, the Burma's last royal capital and the 2nd-largest city (population around 1,23 million). The city is located approx 445 ml (76 km) north of Yangon/Rangoon, on the Irrawaddy's east bank.
Despite the rise of Naypyidaw Union Territory (Myanmar's current capital city), Mandalay is the economic centre of Upper Burma and is considered the centre of Burmese culture. The continuing influx of Chinese immigrants in the past 20 years, has reshaped the city's ethnic makeup and increased commerce with China.
Among the Manadalay city's most popular attractions are:
- Atumashi Monastery
- Buddha's Replica Tooth Pagoda (in the Swedaw Pagoda in Amarapura)
- Kuthodaw Pagoda (aka "The World's Biggest Book")
- Kyauktawgyi Pagoda
- Mahamuni Buddha Temple
- Mandalay Hill (the city's holy mount)
- Mandalay Palace complex (partially rebuilt after being destroyed during WWII)
- Shwenandaw Monastery
- The Chinese Temple
- Yadanabon Zoological Gardens (zoo with over 300 species).
Highlights: Royal Palace, Kuthodaw pagodas, Mahamuni pagoda, Mingun
