The Travelfish long read for December 2020 is out: Mandalay, Burma

Posted by somtam2000 on 2/12/2020 at 05:20 admin

Early each morning Yin Yin Lwin walks the short distance from her Mandalay home to the moat surrounding the walls of the city’s Royal Palace, the grand structure that was built in the middle of the 19th century, and which remains the dominant edifice in Myanmar’s second biggest city.
After arriving at the palace’s eastern wall, Lwin usually walks north, in the direction of Mandalay Hill, then onwards to the northwest corner of the palace, before returning home. This morning ritual usually takes her about an hour.

Our latest long read, looking at the influence of China on Mandalay, Burma is now online. You can read it here.
