Please help with a Mandalay itinerary

Hi All,

I'm to land on Tuesday noon, and will leave on Friday morning. I'm staying near the east moat. I've listed the following items:

* one sunset at the U-Bien bridge and one on the Hill

* Sagaging hill

* Shew In Bin Kyaung

* Gold Pounders' district

* Kyauktawgyi Paya

* the palace

* Mahamuni Paya

* Jade market

Is this doable, too much or too little?

Preferred order?

Anything crucial that I missed?

Where to stop on the way from the airport on the first day?

Car or motorcycle?

Anything to do in the evenings-nights?

Additional tips?

Thank you,

Roni.

"Warmly Welcome to Mandalay and Myanmar"

When you land on Mandalay airport , you better visit to Sagaing hill , Innwa and U Bein Bridge for sunset in Amarapura. It is enough time to do it within 4 or 5 hours. Then check in hotel in Mandalay. Because Former capital cities of Mandalay, Sagaing , Innwa and Amarapura are in between Mandalay and airport.

Wednesday , Morning sightseeing to south site of Mandalay to ShweInpin Monastery , Gold leaf making , Jake market , Marble stone carving and Mahamuni pagoda. Afternoon and evening , you can go and visit to King Palace , Kuthodaw pagoda , Sandamuni pagoda, Shwenandaw monastery and Mandalay hill for sunset.

In our Mandalay , we have three entertainment for evening. (1) Moustache Brothers Show (2) Mandalay Marionettes and culture Show (3) Min thar traditional Dancing Show. All start at 8:30 PM and finish at 9:30.

Good idea is you take a car in arrival day for Sagaing and Innwa and Amarapura. Next day with motor cycle.

Enjoy your stay in Mandalay

I am only able to visit Mandalay in early April. I know it will be very hot but is it possible to still have a good time?

April is too hot for tourists but if you don't care for summer heat , you can enjoy water festival ( the most funniest festival in our country ) in this time.

One important thing is very cheap for your accommodation in anywhere in Myanmar.

Just 40 or a little bit more than 40. It is not really so hot for us.

Welcome to Myanmar Summer if you wish.
