Mandalay - excursions and day trips

Located in Myanmar, Mandalay is the capital city of the country. It is the home to several ancient monasteries and pagodas. It is also a culturally rich city that is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. The city has been shaped by a combination of the Chinese and Burmese cultures. It is a multi-cultural city where the Bamar (Burmans) make up the majority of the population.

While there are many things to see and do in Mandalay, it is important to remember that it is not the only place to visit in the area. There are numerous day trips and excursions that are available. These trips will take you to the best attractions and sites in the region. It is important to research and plan your trip in advance. In this way, you will be able to make the most of your visit to this charming city.

The Mahamuni Temple is one of the most famous attractions in the city. It is the largest pagoda in Mandalay, and it is also considered the most important religious site in the city. The temple was built by King Bodawpaya. The main Buddha image in the temple is 3.5 meters high. This Buddhist temple has a long history, and it is still a popular destination for visitors today.


The Kuthodaw Temple is another important site to visit in the city. It is a complex that contains 700 marble slabs inscribed with Buddhist teachings. The temple is made up of hundreds of smaller towers, and it is decorated with gold. It is also the home of the world's largest book.

The U Bein Bridge is another major tourist attraction in Mandalay. It is the longest wooden bridge in the world, and it is the symbol of Myanmar culture. It is 1.2 kilometers in length and features 1000 supporting pillars. The bridge is also considered the most beautiful sunset spot in the world.

The Kayuk Taw Gyi Pagoda is another must-see place to visit in Mandalay. It houses a huge marble Buddha. It is also known as the Snake Temple, as it is said that three large snakes have slept in front of the Buddha statue. The Buddha is said to be a guardian spirit, and the giant pythons that are found inside the temple are honored by the locals. It is interesting to see the temple, and a fun activity to do.


Another great thing to do in Mandalay is to climb the Mandalay Hill. This hill rises 240 meters above the city and offers a breathtaking view of the city. If you are not up for a trek, there are motorbikes that you can rent in the city. A horse cart is also available.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
