Day trip to Mingun and the royal cities Ava & Sagaing (L)

starting from $130

You will be picked up at your hotel around 7:30 a.m. Together with your guide you drive to the jetty. Here you will have enough time to observe the lively riverside goings-on. Then take a riverboat trip to the ancient capital city of Mingun (approx. one hour each way). Visit the Settawya Pagoda, with its Buddha footprint, and the Mingun Bell, the largest ringing bell in the world; view the nearby unfinished Mingun Pagoda, built to be the world’s biggest pagoda and visit the Hsinbyume Pagoda, a replica of the mythological Mount Meru. From here continue by boat to Ava (approx. two hours / lunch on the boat). From 1364 onwards, Ava (Inwa) spent almost five hundred years as the most prominent royal city in the country, barring brief periods of interruption. Explore this small island by horse-drawn carriage, which lies at the confluence of the Myitnge and Ayeyarwady rivers. You will ascend the 27-metre-high watchtower and visit both the Maha Aung Mye Bonzan Monastery, one of the few existing monasteries to be built from bricks and stucco, and the Bagayar Monastery, which is still regarded as one of the most beautiful traditional wooden monasteries. Then cross the Ava Bridge towards Sagaing, located 21 kilometres south-west of Mandalay, and visit the Sagaing Hills, a place of refuge for devout Buddhists, with its various pagodas, monasteries, convents and the Soon U Ponya Shin Pagoda, which was built in 1312. This location offers outstanding views of Sagaing. In the late afternoon, return to Mandalay.
