Sagaing, AVA & Amarapura Day Tour

Brief Itinerary

Our guide and driver will pick you up from the hotel and then drive 30 minutes to Amarapura (15 km from Mandalay). View the famous Buddhist monastery of Mahagandayon, where more than a thousand monks live and study. We can see over 1,500 monks line up each day to receive their lunch at the Mahagandayon Monastery.

After than we will continue to AVA . In AVA we will bring you to fascinating trip back in time, allowing you to explore the remains of an ancient city full of old watchtowers, city walls, monasteries, and temples that feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of Mandalay.

Interesting places to visit include the atmospheric, teak-built Bagaya Monastery and its surrounding stupas, the Maha Aungmye Bonzan Monastery, and the Nanmyint watch tower (which unfortunately cannot currently be climbed due to its wooden stairs being in an advanced state of disrepair).

AVA sightseeing will be horse cart and after AVA we will take you to Sagaing.

On the hill is the most famous shrine in the area, U Min Thone Zu cave. the Soon U Ponya Shin Pagoda, originally built in 1312.

After Sagaing we will take you to U Bein bridge ( longest teak wood bridge in The world ) to enjoy sunset.

After sunset we will take you back to your hotel.
