The Pagodas of Sagaing, Mandalay
Myanmar, Mandalay

Info : The Pagodas of Sagaing

The hillsides surrounding Sagaing are strewn with hundreds of fascinating monasteries and pagodas, and you can spend a day touring a hand-picked selection of the most exquisite sights in the area. This is followed by lunch at a local restaurant (unless you are travelling by boat in which case you might return to the vessel) before embarking on an energetic trip to the Zay Cho Market.

Admire the local handicrafts and fresh produce displays spilling out onto the street, before continuing on to the Maha Myatmuni Pagoda, home to the most-loved Buddhist statue in Mandalay. The sights at the foot of Mandalay Hill might surprise you on your journey towards the top: the crisp white peaks of the Kuthodaw Pagoda, for example, containing the largest book in the world, perched upright and set in stone. Not to mention the Shwenandaw Monastery with its intricate carvings made from teak. Take some time to enjoy the sunset from the summit.

 


Customer Feedback
Our Pandaw river cruise was excellent in every way and we had a memorable holiday. Our guide Terry made the trip for us. I couldn't recommend Pandaw more highly, it's been perfect in every way. Loved the informality of it all and the evening cocktails were delicious. Trips ashore clambering up the banks of the Irrawaddy into little villages were quite delightful and locals were fascinated by us. Excellent mixed itinerary organised by our guide which took in all aspects of life!
