Don't waste time to drive hotel.

Mandalay airport is around 45km to/from centre and better to visit Innwa, Sagaing or Amarapura on the way.

Easy to find a taxi on stand for a day trip basic car 65 USD to 80 USD with AC.

By the way, No more blue old taxi in Mandalay and all taxi are upgrated in Year 2013.

RE taxi rates: We paid the driver I mentioned in a previous post (newish car with AC and pretty good English) around $30/day and to go all the way to Pyin U Lwin and back $60. Maybe those are off season rates but just wanted to let you know the rates mentioned in another recent post were quite a bit higher than what we paid and we didn't even negotiate.
