In the morning, we drive to Amarapura, which is famous for Mahagandaryone Monastery. Amarapura is the best place to experience monk life in Mandalay. Every day at mid-morning, monks and novices line up silently to receive their daily offering of alms and food from faithful Buddhists. Next, head to Sagaing, discover the monk education, visit Buddha cave, Umin Thonze pagoda, and Sunooponnyashin pagoda. Behold the panoramic view of Mandalay.
We then cross the river by ferry to Inwa (Ava), situated on the banks of the Irrawaddy River. Once a royal capital, Inwa is now a quiet rural oasis. Enjoy a horse cart ride around the peaceful countryside, visiting BagayaKyaung, a beautiful teak wood monastery, MahaAungmyayBonzanKyaung, and Nan Myint tower.
End of the day, we walk over U Bein Wooden Bridge, the longest and oldest teak wooden bridge in the country. To fulfill the best experience here, let take a boat trip to slowly behold the panorama of the legendary bridge at sunset time.
