“Adventurous souls who can handle changes in plans, are open to discovery and appreciate the magic of foreign encounters will find themselves enchanted just as Rudyard Kipling was when he immortalized the country in writing.”
Sudha Shah, author of The King in Exile
“There is a beauty to Mandalay’s location on the mighty Irrawaddy, the arterial river that runs almost vertically through Burma. I’m captivated by the folklore that led to the founding of the city.”
