Overview
What to Expect
Your day begins at 5am as your guide and driver pick you up from your hotel. You'll begin by watching the sunrise over the ancient monuments of Old Bagan from a less-crowded viewpoint. After sunrise (around 7:30am) we continue to our own "secret pagoda" where you will enjoy a local breakfast served outdoors with fresh fruit and organic coffee/tea while observing local rural life. We'll continue with a walking tour of a rural village (from 9am) where you will learn the secrets of bamboo crafting from a family of local artisans. In the late morning heat we will retreat to the cool temple interiors to view one-of-a-kind murals and golden shrines from the historical Bagan period of 9th-13th centuries. Around noon you will enjoy lunch at an hygienic local restaurant of your choice. After lunch we will visit more off-the-beaten track sights within the Bagan monument zone by air-conditioned taxi before making our way beyond Bagan to a secluded riverside monastery nestled among ancient pagodas and stupas with amazing views of the Irrawaddy river from the clifftops. As the sun begins to ease in the late afternoon, we head back to Bagan to view sunset from another secret viewpoint or from the riverside with locals. You'll return to your hotel by taxi after sunset, around 7pm.
