After breakfast, your sightseeing tour will begin at the picturesque Nyaung-U market, a popular touristic attraction, and then continue to the ancient city of Bagan with a stop at the wooden Taungbi Monastery.
It’s then time to begin your real journey through the historical city’s thousand pagodas. Start with a visit of the elegant Htilominlo Temple built by King Htilominlo in 1218. Famous for its exquisite plaster carvings and glazed sandstone decorations, the temple was damaged in the 1975 earthquake and was later renovated.
Next stop is Shwezigon Pagoda, one of the oldest pagodas in Bagan where pilgrims come to honor Buddha. It’s a splendid temple, all in gold and glimmering brightly under the sunlight.
For the second part of your visit, proceed to the heart of Myinkaba village. With its gravel streets, woven bamboo houses and palm leaves roofs, Myinkaba has the unique charm of Burmese traditional villages. There, you’ll visit a factory specialized in lacquered products, preserving ancestral handicrafts of high quality that are nowadays internationally well-known. You will be able to learn about the different stages of manufacturing products from skilled local craftsmen.
Then, make a stop at the Mynkaba-Gubaukkyi temple, one of the oldest temples in Bagan dating back to 1113 with its impressive murals and frescoes.
Following your tour of famous pagodas, you will discover Manuha temple, another Burmese pilgrimage site, and its neighbor Nanpaya, one of the few temples with sandstone faces covering the brick structure.
In the afternoon, embark on a horse-drawn carriage to explore the other temples and pagodas like Thatbyinnyu, the largest temple in Bagan, or Ananda Temple. It has been described as a work of architectural genius and is certainly one of the most striking temples in Bagan. Take your time to admire the several mural painting dating all the way back to the 13th century.
Finally, at the end of the day, enjoy the golden sunset over the temples from a hill overlooking the beautiful scenery of pagodas rising amidst the lush forest.
