Arriving in Washington

Book your flights to Washington with Etihad Airways and transport yourself into a world of fascinating history and exciting variety.

Plan Your Washington Holiday

Travel to Washington and experience a city steeped in history and moulded by modern ingenuity. Tour eminent Capitol Hill by day and experience the rush of the city’s music scene by night. Sample the dizzying variety of tantalizing and oft-experimental global cuisine in the city, or sit down to a hearty, traditional American meal in Old Town Alexandria. Take a stroll through historic Georgetown and visit the plethora of local shops and boutiques, or tour the reverently lit Washington monuments in the chill of night.

When you book your tickets to Washington, you can be certain of a holiday rife with adventure and excitement. The best time to take full advantage Washington’s innumerable attractions is between March and May, and again between September and December, when weather is mild and temperate. If you’re looking to visit the city on a budget, consider travelling in winter or summer for easy access to cheap hotels in Washington.

Plan Your Excursion to Mandalay

Whether you are looking for something fun and exhilarating or relaxing, Mandalay has what you are looking for. After travelling up to Mandalay Hill, a traveler can catch a view of the gorgeous city and its surrounding countryside from 230 meters up. The Mandalay Palace is a magnificent complex that is home to the Cultural Museum, featuring sculptures, painting and furniture used by both King Mindon and King Thibaw. The cost of entering the museum is approximately $2 US per person.

The Shwenandaw Monastery is famous for its intricate wood-carvings. The Kuthodaw Pagoda, or the World’s Biggest Book, is a stone sculpture that was built in 1857. The Buddhist Bible is surrounded by 729 upright stone slabs with religious inscriptions.

The Atumashi Monastery is quite popular among men and women who fly to Mandalay. Build by King Mindon in 1857, the original structure burnt down in 1890. Fortunately, the grand monastery was rebuilt in the Nineties for visitors to enjoy.

Finally, a traveler to Mandalay can take the whole family to Yadanabon Zoological Gardens to see more than 300 different species of animals, including Burmese Roofed Turtles.
