People around Mandalay | Myanmar

My time in Mandalay was about 3 days, during those days wandered around, within the city mainly the outskirt of the city where you can find more traditional Burmese lifestyle than in the city itself.

There is so much diversity here, monasteries, art and crafts workshops, and of course rural areas. In this post I share mostly portraits, daily life, captured in the very different areas. I’ll make another post soon dedicated to landscapes.

Visiting Mandalay and surrounding areas was a great experience, as in other parts of the country people was always very welcoming.
