In pictures: Mandalay uncovered
THE road to Mandalay is one of the prime undertakings visitors to Burma undertake during their sojourn in the remote Asian nation.
And there’s good reason to. Burma’s second largest city was the last royal capital and is rich in monasteries, architecture, crafts, food, and various modes of transport.
Lying on the Ayerwaddy River it is awash with monks, markets, people and goods with everything from jade markets to football games in monasteries to age old palaces to see.
These images should give some insights into life in Mandalay.
