Amarapura - Former Capital Near Mandalay & One of Sam's Exotic Travels
Located between Mandalay and the airport south of the city, Amarapura was capital of Myanmar until King Mindon built Mandalay and moved the capital there inside the walled fort. Now it is largely deserted, except for a large monastery which houses 1,000 monks. The famed U Bein's Bridge, a 150-year old bridge, made of teak wood is nearby, a favorite photo place. The Lake, full after the summer rains, is dry part of the year. My timing was good - and weather was great.
