The Tour: Ancient Capitals of Myanmar
Today the capital of Myanmar is Naypyidaw but over the centuries the seat of power for this country has changed many times. This excursion gives the opportunity to take a trip back in time and visit three of the ancient capitals Inwa, Sagaing and Amarapura.
Pick up is from your Mandalay hotel at 8am to transfer to Inwa, which along with Mandalay is probably Myanmars most famous ancient capital. The ruins of this kingdom from the 14th to the 19th Century are still visible today, although it was eventually abandoned following an earthquake. You will be taken around this fascinating town by horse cart, whilst your guide highlights buildings such as monasteries and the Nan Myint Watch Tower.
Onwards by transfer then to the riverside city of Sagaing, famous for its hundreds of white and gold pagodas which adorn the hills surrounding it. Visit the most famous shrine in the area Soon U Ponya Shin Pagoda originally built in 1312 and pause for a traditional Myanmar lunch at the top of Sagaing hill, with sweeping views over all of Mandalay. The final visit of the day is to Amarapura, meaning City of Immortality, famous for its dramatic U Bein Bridge, built around 1850 and believed to be the oldest and longestteakwood bridge in the world. Here you can explore the city and wander through this leafy suburb of Mandalay, before witnessing sunset and the final transfer of the day to your hotel.
