Mandalay has many sightseeing attractions.

Besides these, not be missed is a show by the famous Moustache Brothers. A comedy trio who have served a total of 12 years in prison for their political (anti-government) performances and jokes. They are not only allowed to perform from their home, for tourists. They perform every night, cost 8000 kyat, which goes towards helping political prisoners. Bicycle rickshaw drivers will undoubtedly approach you to strike a return pedal deal.

Zegyo Market (Burmese: zei-gyo) is a collection of bazaar street markets located near the city centre.
