Begin today’s journey with breakfast at the hotel before discovering Bagan which is best known as an extraordinary archaeological site with a collection of over 2,000 temples. A Bagan sightseeing starts with a visit to Nyaung Oo Colorful Market in Nyaung Oo region, coupled with myriad temples and pagodas such as Shwezigon Pagoda, erected by King Anawrahta in the early 11th century, Wetkyi Inn Gubyaukgyi which is renowned for its fine mural paintings of Jataka scenes and Htilominlo Pagoda where we can view its plaster curving, Ananda Temple, the best-preserved masterpieces of Mon architecture and the Tharaba gate.
We will have a lunch break before returning to the hotel for a rest to get prepared for the afternoon sightseeing. Our afternoon sightseeing would begin with a visit to a lacquerware workshop before transferring to Dhammayangyi – a giant temple of the 12th century, featuring a unique architectural style with a pyramid-like temple.
Continue our journey to Sularmuni Temple from the 12th century. Actually, it is a perfect place to stop for a photo opportunity. Moreover, there is also a chance that you can travel on dirt roads by horse carriage. With this experience, you are able to pass through not easily accessed areas by car or bus. After that, let’s enjoy the sunset Pyathat Gyi Temple as well as capture a panoramic view of Bagan. Finish our Bagan sightseeing with a drive back to the hotel, accompanied by an overnight stay at Bawgatheddhi Hotel Bagan.
Note: Today we are going to do sightseeing together in the same coach and we do not ride.
