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 guide told us the stories behind things, rather than reeling of facts and figures. She brought Inle Lake and the surrounding cultures to life for us. And on the last day she organised a free late check out for us which I really appreciated. We felt she had really done her homework on us and also on all the places we visited.
