The morning will be spent sailing as you enjoy the passing countryside. A back of house tour and cooking class with our Executive Chef will be available.
In the afternoon visit the pagoda sprinkled Sagaing Hill, an important religious and monastic centre, home to some 554 monasteries and 6,000 monks and nuns. Here we will visit a Monastic school where you will have the opportunity to meet some of the residents and understand the teachings of Buddhism.
Next, take in the views from the top of the hill on the terraces of the Soon U Ponya Shin Pagoda before heading to Amarapura. Once known as 'The City of Immortals', today, the leisurely 'clack-clack' from the looms of the cotton and silk weavers has replaced the noisy bustle of this former capital. Finally, visit the U Bein Bridge, a spectacular place to enjoy the sunset.
After sunset, return to the Sanctuary Ananda where a local performance will be followed by dinner on board.
