Mandalay, the second largest city in Myanmar, is the capital of the Mandalay Division. Also referred to as the ‘City of Gems’, it was the last commanding capital of Myanmar before the British conquered the place. With a population of over two million inhabitants, Mandalay is now a major economic centre.
The city is typified by a semi-tropical climate with dry, cold winters and hot summers. It receives inadequate rainfall as it is located in a dry zone. The period from November to February is the best time to visit, owing to the cool and pleasant climate.
Mandalay was founded by King Minodin Min in 1859. The city grew actively to become a major trading and communications hub of the country. The city’s economy comprises of silk weaving, wood carving, jade cutting and the manufacturing of gold and silver ornaments.

Overall Guide : Mandalay offers visitors various interesting historical sites coupled with traditional performances and vibrant shopping markets. The city is home to some ancient royal cities such as Amarapura, Mingun and Inwa, which make for interesting sights. The Maha Myat Muni Paya... more is a holy pilgrimage site with a huge gold statue of the Buddha. This ancient image of Buddha is one of the most treasured statues in the country.   Another significant attraction of Mandalay is the Shwe Nandaw Kyaung Temple Grounds. It is the only prominent structure from the ancient royal palace which still exists. The monastery is embellished with beautiful carvings and is an example of the grandeur of the old palace. The Kuthodaw Pagoda is a magnificent site which consists of over seven hundred stone slabs which have the ancient Buddhist scriptures inscribed on them. Built in 1857, it is commonly known as the ‘World’s Greatest Book’ owing to its stone scriptures.

Overall Guide : Mandalay can be said as the heart of Myanmar, and one of a good place to visit around Asia. The Royal Palace with the surrounding moat, The Kuhthodaw Pagoda with the Wold's Largest Book, U-Pein Bridge build with teak across... more Ayeyarwady River, The Mahamuhnih Pagoda and many historical sites are worth visiting. As Mandalay lies in the center of Myanmar, within short trips, visitors can easily visit places like Bagan (a land of ancient pagodas), Shan state (where people row boats with legs in Inlay Lake), Inn Wah(a historical site with the old palace), Migun where one of the world's largest bell is, and many other places. Hope u like the information. If you like to visit Mandalay, winter will suit your travel. Summer is a little hot and it is not very comfortable with rains.

Overall Guide : Mandalay is a nice city. I like living in Mandalay where there are lots of ancient pagoda and nice places. But transporting in mandalay isn't good. Because all streets are very narrow and most of people don't obey rules. It... more is very dangerous to go along those streets in it.
