Mandalay Holidays

The last royal capital of the Burmese kingdom, Mandalay retains great importance throughout the Burma as a cultural centre and spiritual heartland of the nation. Despite recent modernisation, Mandalay has retained much of its heritage and boasts a collection of fine historic sites, archaeological remains and important religious complexes. Visit Mahamuni Paya which houses the highly venerated Mahamuni Buddha image and Shewenandaw Kyaung or cruise the Irrawaddy River to the village of Mingun – site of the world’s largest intact bronze bell – and Mingun Paya. Outside Mandalay explore Amarapura the 18th century capital of Burma, cross U Bein Bridge constructed entirely of teak and visit the abandoned remains at Inwa, once the principle city of the Burmese Kingdom for over 400 years. Pettitts specialises in providing quality, tailor-made holidays and tours to Burma.
