Explore ancient Ava (Inwa),
Info : Explore ancient Ava (Inwa)
An ancient capial on the banks of the Irrawaddy River near Mandalay, with fascinating relics and a rich royal history, Ava held power in Myanmar (Burma) for almost 500 years.
Even after having been destroyed and rebuilt numerous times over the centuries, Ava continues to exude a regal sort of charm. It’s best explored by horse-drawn cart, which is possible on most tour's we arrange. Sit back and travel in style to some of the city’s most significant destinations: the Yadana Hsemee Pagoda Complex, Maha Aung Mye Bon Zan monastery, and of course the palace ruins.

Our guides in Yangon, Bagan, and Kalaw / Lake Inle were wonderful. They struck the right balance of explaining the history and importance of the sights we were seeing without over-doing it, they knew where to get the best view/experience at what time and could rearrange experiences so we got the most out of them.
