Step back in time to ancient Burma and learn all about its Buddhist traditions with this fantastic tour of the pagodas of Mandalay. This brilliant private adventure is exclusively for you and your friends, partner, or family.
Pagoda Tour of Mandalay
At 8:30 am, we will pick you up from your hotel in Mandalay and set off for the beautiful small town of Mingun.
When we arrive at the city's pier, a boat will be waiting to take us on a one-hour trip across the Irawadi River to the city. Once there, we will board a tuk-tuk that will take us to the beautiful Mingun Paya pagoda: an unfinished stupa that holds the world record for being the largest brick pile in the world.
Our tour continues at the huge Mingun Bell, which was salvaged following an earthquake that devastated the temple. We will then ride in the tuk-tuk which will drop us at the river for the return journey to Mandalay. Keep your eyes open as we sail back, as the amazing Irawadi dolphin lives in these waters.
When we arrive in the city, you will have one hour of free time to eat at around 1 pm. Then with our batteries recharged, we will begin a fascinating tour of the pagodas. The first stop is at the Mahamuni Temple which houses the most revered Buddha in Myanmar. Next, we will arrive at Shwenandaw Monastery, a majestic work of wood carving.
We will also see the golden pagoda of Kuthodaw, which houses the world's largest book with marble leaves. The icing on the cake to our trip is on Mandalay hill while admiring the magnificent sunset of the city.
The tour concludes when we drop you back at your hotel at 6 pm.
