Mandalay is known for its food and interesting market showcasing food from all around the country. Today we have no temples or pagodas for you, but instead interesting food and bustling markets. We start early morning with a local breakfast (Nan Gyi Thoke) and a visit to the vegetable market. Continue with a stroll to a lively neighborhood with home industries showing you how to make Mandalay sweets, local cakes and noodles.
We continue to the countryside and stop at a farm to see where all the food actually comes from. A typical home made Mandalay lunch is served at one of the lesser known monasteries in the country side where for a donation we will help plant a few "Sein Ta Lone" mango trees – producing in a few years the best mangoes in the country. As the Burmese saying goes "The best time to plant a mango tree is 10 years ago – the second best time is today". Return to the hotel around 3pm or continue to the fish market which is starts later in the afternoon.
