Tour description

Mandalay is known for its food and interesting market showcasing food from all around the country. Continue with a stroll to a lively neighborhood with house industries showing you how to make Mandalay sweets, local cakes and noodles. Drive to country side and stop at a farm to see where all the foods actually comes from. A typical home made Mandalay lunch is served at one of the lesser known monasteries in the country side where we donate and help planting a few “Sein Ta Lone” mango trees – producing in a few years the best mango in the country – as a Burmese saying says: “the best time to plant a mango tree is 10 years ago – the second best time is today”.
