Mandalay's heart of gold

On this episode of DVB’s Doh Pyay Doh Myay [Our Land Our Region], the team tours the artisan workshops of Mandalay.

Now, as business booms, rent skyrockets and tourists flood in, Burma’s second largest city is changing.

Yet the city’s soul can still be found in its artisan workshops, where its short—but rich— history is preserved…in gold.
