Used the Grab app to book a ride to Don Muang Airport for my flight from Bangkok to Mandalay, Myanmar. The Air Asia check-in was a big mess as usual with huge lines. All of the other airline counters were almost empty.
The flight went smoothly and it only took about two hours. In Mandalay I took a shared taxi which is actually a minibus that filled up pretty quickly with European backpackers. On the ride from the airport we saw tons of temples and stupas and monks in pink robes and cone hats everywhere.
After checking into Hotel Boss, I took a tuk-tuk to the Royal Palace and walked around the walls. I didn't realize how long the walls are so I had to grab a motorcycle taxi just to get to the other side. It got dark pretty early so I took some night shots of the walls, moat, and the temples on Mandalay Hill.
