Amazing Bagan, Full day tour
What an amazing site! Over 2000 Pagodas, or temples, are stretching out across the plain, as far as the eye could see. No holidays to Myanmar would be complete without a visit to Bagan. This full day tour will be taking you through Bagan’s areas to visit the best-known temples with remarkable architectural designs. Our visit starts from any temples but we’ll definitely take you to Ananda, an architectural masterpiece of the early – style temple with four impressive standing Buddha images, Dhammayangyi which is famous for very strong foundation, Ananda Okkyaung, one of the few surviving brick monasteries from the early Bagan period and Thatbyinnyu the highest temple in Bagan rising to 81 meters. A brief stop is made for photo at Tharabar Gate, visit to lacquerware workshop to experience the processes of making and the colorful Nayung Oo Market. Lunch is served at local restaurant with traditional Burmese foods. Stop at Wetkyi-In Gubyaukgyi, a cave temple with exquisite jatakas murals paintings and the elegant Htilominlo temple noted for its fine plaster carvings and glazed sandstone decorations.
The origins of the lacquer seem to come from Bagan about 12th – 13th century. One of the oldest lacquers was indeed discovered in the pagoda Mingalazedi, at the 13th century. It’s wise spending time in Bagan in the midday, we can avoid the heat as well as learn the processes of lacquer preparations step by step, how bamboo is used to make the inner part of the lacquerware, how bamboo is cut out, softened, and used to give the shape of the desired objects. Bowls, dishes, vases, cuts, plates, various boxes, and most famous is being the box for betel leaves and nuts. It’s a good place to visit and buy unique lacquer products for souvenirs.
Evening around 5:00pm, hop on the horse drawn cart and travel to the spot where we’ll enjoy the sunset in Bagan. We can stop at any place to get stunning view of Bagan sunset photos. At the end, car will pick up and we’ll go back to your hotel.
