What to expect

Our Mandalay Instagram Photo Tour take you to the most engaging and Instagram-worthy photo spots around Myanmar’s last royal capital, Mandalay. Snap photos and experience the stellar beauty of Myanmar’s cultural and spiritual heart along the Irrawaddy River. Immerse yourself in the spellbinding scenery and Burmese culture while exploring the city and its heritage.

We’ll visit the majestic Mandalay temples, as well as some of the lesser-traveled surrounding ruins. To avoid the crowds, we’ll time our visits so the light is best and the crowds are at their lowest.


Explore the vibrant modern life of the area, from colorful markets at sunrise to the royal palace and U Bein Bridge. Visit active riverside communities on the Irrawaddy and lively local tea shops, diving into the local scene for the best photo opportunities. Our scenes and backgrounds include spectacular temples and monasteries, stunning panoramic vistas, and colorful urban street life.
