Mandalay & sagaing
Begin with a tour of Mandalay including the Mahamuni Pagoda,
Shwenandaw Monastery and Kuthodaw Pagoda, then, after sailing past
the monasteries of Sagaing and visiting a Ywataung silversmith,
either see silk weavers in Amarapura or witness traditional village
life in Sin Kyun.
Visit U Bein Bridge, a spectacular place to enjoy the
sunset. This long teak
bridge snakes across the Taungthaman Lake. After sunset, catch
a boat up the Ayeyarwady River and return to the Sanctuary
Enjoy a welcome dinner on the sandbank overlooking Mingun,
followed by a traditional musical performance.
