Full description
Your day will begin as you are picked up from your Mandalay City hotel at 08:00AM. You will begin with some discovery of the Shwenandaw Monastery, a fine-teak monastery and temple which is known for its carving, particularly the interior gilded Jakarta scenes. You will then move on to the Atumashi Monastery, which was built in 1857 by King Mindon and was one of the king's last great religious construction projects. Kuthodaw Pagoda is next, and is comprised of a gilded pagoda, hundreds of shrines housing inscribed marble slabs, and several pavilions. You will then move on to the Sandarmuni Pagoda, a statue which reportedly weights 40,924.8 pounds. Some exploration of Mandalay Hill will follow, which is a 760-foot hill. After Mandalay Hill, you will explore the Royal Palace. The Royal Palace complex is of glittering 1990s reconstruction and is impressive for its scale, with more than 40 timber buildings inside it. The Mahamuni Pagoda is a 13-foot-tall seated Buddha, a nationally celebrated image that's popularly believed to be some 2,000 years old. Following these explorations it will be time for lunch, after which you will start exploring Sagaing City. Following Sagaing City, you will Continue to Innwa/Ava City where you will rent both a boat and a horse and carriage to best discover the area. After exploring for the day, it will be time to see the sunset at U Bein Bridge. Once the sun has set, you will depart from Innwa/Ava City to be returned to your hotel in Mandalay.

- Punctual collection at the hotel. I was the only guest that day and was able to enjoy a private tour. - I recommend wearing trekking sandals or flip-flops as shoes and socks have to be taken off at almost all sights - For lunch we stopped in a restaurant in Sagging. The restaurant was visited by many tourists. The food was good and reasonably priced. (Pasta with vegetables and chicken strips and 2 papaya juices for just under $ 4) - I omitted the "Yadanar Semi" and "Bagaya Monastery" in Ava because the price for the horse-drawn carriage needed to get there with 15,000 kyat ($ 10) was exorbitantly high in my eyes. After consulting the guide, this was not a problem. The only small minus point, which is why there were no 5 stars: - My driver only spoke poor English. I was just unlucky. With "hands and feet" and simple questions, the communication worked.

The tour was well put together, you can see a lot on that day. The driver was reliable and friendly. The information in the brochure received is very scarce, so it is advisable to have your own literature with you. I would book it again.
