Mandalay, Myanmar

From Bagan I caught a bus to Mandalay. This city with such an iconic name is not the most pedestrian friendly, and perhaps a hard place to warm to. However I did find photographic opportunity at the famous U-Bein Bridge in Amarapura, along with the Jade Market in Mandalay City centre.
