Mandalay Hill

By amanda0102  
Our first time in Myanmar. We started in Mandalay, this is the sunrise at Mandalay Hill, we rented a moped from Mandalay Motorbike Hire on 80th street which was near our hotel it worked out a lot cheaper (10,000K for 24hours) than a taxi and allowed us the freedom we enjoy. Other towns like Inle where we are now do not allow tourists to use motorbikes, to squeeze more out of travellers. We watched the sun come up over mandalay hill for over an hour, starting before blue hour when the lights on the pagodas shone in the darkness, we eagerly waited as it gradually for brighter until the sun peeked over the mountains in the distance. We went to a little known area on the hill less touristy and not right at the top. It meant there was only us and three others enjoying the view along with the stray dogs we brought the usual treats of high vitamin dog food for. Was great to see the calm after the hectic bustle of the city below.

That combination of mist and early sun is unbeatable.
