A day dedicated to discovering the culture of Mandalay and meeting its inhabitants.
The day starts with a shopping trip to the local market, an opportunity to discover all the seasonal fruits, vegetables, and herbs often used in Burmese cuisine.
Then, you’ll visit a Burmese Tea Room, a very popular meeting place among the Burmese people. It’s where friends and family hang out around a fresh herbal drink.
Pedaling to a local village, you will take part in a cooking class where you’ll learn to make famous traditional Burmese dishes. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty! The bonus point is that you’ll actually be eating the dishes you have prepared for lunch.
After relaxing in a traditional house, it’s time to get back on your bike to ride around the village’s surroundings and observe the daily life of the locals for a complete immersion experience.
End this beautiful day at Yan Kin Hill, a place far from the tourist crowds, to admire a breathtaking sunset on the golden land. This long ride of discoveries and encounters will come to an end around 18:00 when it would be time to return to your hotel.
