We have hired a self-drive motorcycle and are exploring Mandalay downtown, Inwa (Ava) and Sayaing itself, which costs us about 20,000 - 30,000 Kyats per days, which is still a little less than renting a cab! But Mandalay may be a little insane at the crossroads.

It was my favorite place and is really a must for those who love temples and historical sites. Dawn & sundown were the highpoints of our journey & the best way to discover Bagan is by horse-drawn carriage. The Bagan - Magical indeed! It'?s Bagan! andalay was Burma's second biggest and last imperial capitol.
Amarapura, Innwa & Sagaing, which were easy to reach as daily excursions from Mandalay. Old City - Amarapura, Inwa (Ava) Inle Lake is a swimming pool set in the lovely Shan Mill. On the next excursion we went to Taunggyi, the Kakku Pagoda Complex constructed in BC307 and on the first night of the new year 2014 we had a nice breakfast by bike through the city of NgaungShwe.
From the shores of the lakes and the rivers - with which everything is washed!
