Getting Around in Mandalay, Myanmar

Taxis are relatively inexpensive and are excellent for travelling around Mandalay, though they do not have air-con. They can be difficult to flag down so expect quite a bit of walking to be necessary (the city layout is very simple and easy to navigate).

Motorcycle taxis are a cheap alternative, and will usually give you a cheap helmet to wear as well.

Many sights are centered around Mandalay Hill, which makes foot-walking feasible in that area.
