Take an optional early morning balloon tour to capture a birds-eye
view of the Bagan plain (an additional charge applies, please book
in advance. Available October - March only), followed by breakfast
back on board.
This morning visit the temples of Bagan. First, visit the Ananda
Temple. Completed in 1091 AD, it is commonly referred to as one of
the four great temples in Bagan. A horse-cart will be your mode of
transport through the Bagan plains, with several photo stops and a
visit to Sulamani pagoda.
En route to Mount Popa, visit a jaggery workshop which produces
unrefined sugar. Lunch will be served at Popa Mountain Resort with
spectacular views of the site. Choose to climb the 777 steps where
pilgrims give offerings and pray to carved figures. Return to the
ship in the early evening and enjoy the sunset as we sail.
Tonight, a candlelit sandbank dinner is served with the backdrop
of the twinkling lights of Bagan.
