Perhaps the most dazzling region of this surprising country in many ways.
Mandalay, the cultural capital of Myanmar, is its ambassador of charm with two incredible must-see attractions not to be missed: Bagan and Inle Lake.
Once, between the 9th and 13th centuries, Bagan was the first capital of the Pagan kingdom. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bagan is famous for its more than 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries, of which about 2,200 are still alive. The ultimate experience in Bagan is a hot-air balloon ride over the site at sunset…
Surrounded by beautiful mountains, Inle Lake is the second largest lake in Myanmar. Nestled in the heart of the country, in Nyaung Shwe, in the southern part of the Shan State, it hosts in a rich natural setting an equally rich and varied cultural heritage. The floating gardens of the inthas are one of the most attractive aspects of Inle Lake, with the Nga Phe Chaung Monastery – the “Jumping Cat Monastery” – and the Phaung Daw Oo Temple in the center.
One will not fail to discover the amazing site of the Shwe in Dein pagoda, with its thousand ancient pagodas.
