MEALS [ L ]
Meet with the guide at the hotel and cross a large moat before arriving at the iconic former Royal Palace in the centre of Mandalay. The palace was constructed between 1857 and 1859 when King Mindon founded the new royal capital city of Mandalay. It was the primary residence of the last two kings of Myanmar and is steeped in history.
Unfortunately the palace compound was destroyed during World War II. A replica built in the 1990s now stands at the former site but the history and majesty lives on. Walk in the footsteps of the country’s former kings exploring the large compound and listening to the expert guide recount fascinating stories while the children are busy looking for the visual and spoken clues to a fun and educational quiz about the former Royal Palace.
The kids will have to be proactive to answer all ten quiz questions – running up and down (sturdy!) stairs, identifying Burmese texts, listening to the guide, reading information signs and interacting with local people. The purpose of the quiz is to be educational but also to create an active and enjoyable experience for children who might otherwise be bored on a history tour.
Once the children have figured out all the correct answers they will receive a small prize as a recognition of their newly acquired knowledge about the history of Mandalay!
