Heavy traffic on winding roads

City view

City view

Drive to Mandalay today, a distance of about 200km and takes about 5 hours. There are some climbs and descents over the mountains on very windy roads. This includes lots of hairpin turns. There are lots of trucks and they require the entire width of the road to negotiate the turns. This means traffic goes in one direction for a while and then the reverse.

Arrive in Mandalay in the early afternoon and go for a walk and find some lunch. Holy day here so a lot of shops closed at the local shopping centre. Mandalay has a population of about1.2 million and has that big city feel.
