Sittwe to Mrauk U
After arriving into Sittwe you’ll head by car to the small town of Mrauk U. Due to its location, the town is less visited by tourists making it a real hidden gem and a place where you can truly see the traditional way of life in Myanmar. Today is mainly taken up by travelling so there’s nothing planned for you once you reach your hotel. The bungalows have a small terrace and are charmingly carved in typical Burmese style.
Guided tour of Mrauk U by car
This morning you’ll head out with your guide after enjoying breakfast at your hotel. This is your chance to explore the main highlights of Mrauk U, discovering the fortress like temples and learning more about the history of this undiscovered area and the Rakhine Dynasties. You’ll notice the temples in this area are built in a different style to others in Myanmar. You can also ask your guide to recommend some restaurants to visit for lunch or dinner to enjoy some traditional Burmese delights.
Free Day & Departure
Today is free for you to explore the surrounding area at your own pace. Amble through villages, explore hidden temples and relax into rural Burmese life. After breakfast on day 4 it’s time to say goodbye and head off to your next Myanmar destination. You’ll be transferred back to Sittwe by boat, stopping at a market and one of the viewpoints to look out across the countryside if time permits, before continuing your journey through Myanmar.
