Our guide and driver will pick up to you at 08:30AM and drive to U Bein Bridge. After that keep going to Mahagandayon Monastery in Amarapura, one of the biggest and most important monasteries in Myanmar.
After a short visit to the monastery's premises, the guests will be invited to serve rice and cakes at 10:00am to monks passing by, in queue. The ceremony takes place daily at 10:30 in the morning. You will be joined by locals as they make their offerings, thus the donation is non-inclusive
At the afternoon, we’ll visit to mysterious "Maha Muni Buddha", the most revered Buddha image in Myanmar. Being the most holy pilgrimage site, a rite of visiting pilgrims is to apply gold leaf to the statue. The result of this has left the statue distorted in some areas, namely the chest where there is 6 inches of gold leaf.
Mandalay Hill is the best place for an introduction to Mandalay city. Catch a glimpse of sunrise in the morning or enjoy sun set, before or after your day touring.
Nearby there are also many remarkable sights like the Golden Palace Monastery with its exquisite wood carvings, Kuthodaw pagoda, famous for housing the "Biggest book in the World" and Kyauk Taw Gyi pagoda, with its huge Marble Buddha.
This tour offers a great introduction to Mandalay and a memorable day touring..
