After traveling and visiting a number of Pagodas in Yangon and Inle, I started to feel a bit Templed-out. The fact that Mandalay has a lot more Pagoda’s to see makes me double think about checking out other nearby attractions. But then again, our time’s limited so we settled on city’s attraction composed of seemingly interesting Pagodas, a complex of shrines, and went out of town to have some amazing sundowner sessions. And boy it didn’t disappoint!

Even though Mandalay isn’t as rugged as Inle Lake, the city has some unique quirks to offer as well. Compared to Yangon, you can easily rent a bike and scooter in Mandalay and use it to do your own sight seeing in the city. What I love about traveling in Mandalay is how photo worthy most of its sights are. One would be the time we spent in U-bein bridge, where even it was flocked with huge amount of locals and tourists, we still found our own vantage point and the people on the bridge just adds to the entire vibe of the golden hour.Took some photos of unsuspecting subjects doing what they do, and instantly became one of my favorite shots.

On this version of Visual Vibes series, I selected a couple of Photos that I hope sees the quirks this city has to offer. Here’s a visual tour of Mandalay’s attractions. Enjoy!
