Full description
Your driver will pick you up from your hotel lobby in Mandalay around 8:30 am and head to the world's largest teak bridge, U Bein Bridge built in 1782. Then, visit Mahagadayon Monastery, a famous Buddhist Monastery where more than a thousand monks live and study. Next, move to Ava (Inwa) by a ferry ride from Myitnge River. Upon arrival, hop on a horse-cart offers you the opportunity to discover the picturesque ruins and surrounding countryside at a relaxed and more tranquil pace. Visit the teak monastery of Bagaya Kyaung (famous for its impressive ornate woodcarvings and teak posts) and the former royal monastery temple known as Maha Aungmye Bonzan, completely built of brick and stucco. The final stop of the day is at Sagaing. Sagaing is considered to be the living center of Buddhism in Myanmar and the hundreds of monasteries and temples reverberate with the echoes of cymbals, gongs, and Pagoda bells. Afterwards, visit Oominthonese Pagoda and Swanoopinyashin Pagoda. After the tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Mandalay.

Great private Day Trip to Sagaing Ava and Amarapura from mandalay

We had an excellent tour guide, Mr Myo, that we arranged through Mekong cruises tours . This was a very full day, but so interesting. He was able to fit in some extra things like a market visit to a tea shop where we could buy the best Myanmar tea, a noodle factory, a school, a walk through a village where furniture was made and a Nunnery. This was all besides the main Saigaing pagodas, the horse cart ride through Ava and the U Bein Bridge at sunset. He also recommended other things that made our stay in Mandalay most pleasant.Highly recommended this tour to anyone visit myanmar
