After enjoying your breakfast you will be transferred to the airport for your domestic flight to Bagan. Welcome to Bagan, known to be one of the greatest architectural sites in Asia. On the banks of the Ayerwaddy River it is home to the largest area of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins in the world, many dating to the 11th and 12th century. The shape and construction of each building is highly significant in Buddhism with each component part taking on spiritual meaning. With a choice out of 2800 pagodas and temples to visit, we will visit the most interesting and quieter ones in Bagan away from tourists.

Day 4 Bagan / Mt.Popa

We begin today with a trip to Mt. Popa, about 30 miles (50km) from Bagan. On the way stop to see skillful toddy-palm climbers collecting the wine on top of the trees, at a toddy palm juice & palm sugar (jaggery) making cottage. Have a taste of this Burmese candy! We then visit a village and see the ways of Myanmar village life. By chance, you can see making oil from peanut and sesame seeds by rotating the cows to mortar and pestle in traditional way.

We continue on and reach Popa Taung Kalut, which is 2417ft (737m) standing apart from higher forested mountain and looks like a tower. The mountain was shaped out of a volcano that may have erupted some 250,000 years ago. The 25 minutes climb is steep and stiff and it gets cooler as you get higher, but the effort is worth it as the views are fantastic. Back to Bagan we can sit back and relax as we enjoy a bike or horse cart ride among majestic temples of Bagan – a wonderful way to see Bagan!

However, despite the energy and thriving business it’s where the cultural heart of Myanmar lies and tradition of music, dance and drama are still alive. Upon arrival we will be met and then drive to Amarapura and visit a Silk weaving workshop, followed by U Bein Bridge – 1.6 km long wooden bridge said to be the longest teak bridge in the world, built over 150 years ago. The bridge links Amarapura with an island in the middle of Lake Taungthaman, an intermittent body of water which dries up during winter. Once finished we head back to Mandalay and check-in at hotel.

We used Emperor for a group trip to India. they were fantastic with their choice of hotels (some truly incredible) their tour guide, the whole programme and their choice of airlines for the trip. We made things quite tough for them with different members of the group travelling for different periods and arriving in and out of different airports. We specifically had some issues with one of the airlines on the return leg of our trip, through no fault of Emperor, but they did their utmost to put things right and made the journey home as pleasant as possible by meeting the cost of a lounge at the airport for us do to the shortcomings of one of the airlines checking in procedures. The pre holiday package of information was very comprehensive and we were presented with very durable luggage tags. We would have no hesitation in recommending Richard and his team in tailoring a package for a trip to India. We had an amazing culturally stimulating trip and will certainly go back to India in the future.
