Arrival in Bagan

Day 1

Arrival in Bagan

Today you’ll arrive in Nyaung U and be met by your driver, who’ll transfer you to your hotel. You’ll stay in a centrally located boutique property with lush gardens and an inviting pool. During your time here you’ll have mountain bikes and a map at your disposal to explore the temple ruins of Bagan. We recommend heading over to see Ananda Pahto one of the finest and best preserved temples in Myanmar. It towers over the city at an impressive 170ft high and is host to spectacular paintings, gold leaf Buddhas and a small museum.

Cycling with guide, free time & departure

This morning an English-speaking guide will take you to the lesser known temples and fill you in on their majestic history. Once you’ve got your bearings it’s time to head off on your own through the vast networks of dirt roads and trails! After all that cycling you might want to cool off with a refreshing dip in the pool. The following day you’ll head off to your next destination.

Jeep Safari through the Dry Zone

Templed out? For something truly different, head well off the beaten track on this fascinating jeep safari through the dry zone. It’s an early start as you travel by 4×4 out of Bagan and as the sun rises behind you, you’ll pass local women along the way carrying firewood for the market. You’ll visit several local workshops and interact with the local farmers. This is a fantastic and inspiring day out for avid photographers and those fascinated in the daily life of local people as you explore an area of Bagan rarely visited.
