Mandalay, the photos

Well here are the promised/threatened photos ! I have already written about Mandalay, so I’ll just let the pictures tell the story. These are from around the old “Royal Mandalay” area, where the palace, most of the important temples, and Mandalay Hill is located. Click on any image to see a larger version.

There are several other small towns outside Mandalay which also were the capital for a while, such as Ava(Inwa) and Sagaing. These photos are from day trips to them:

Mandalay is on the Ayarawady (Irrawaddy) river, and is quite a busy port. Apart from the ferry to Bagan which most tourists take, there were lots of local ferries, cargo boats, and large rafts of bamboo logs.
