After the breakfast, excursion to Amarapura which is quite closed to Mandalay, one of the ancient capitals of the Burmese Empire, founded during the Konbaung dynasty, was twice the capital (1783-1821 and 1842-1859). Today only a few ruins remain of this capital, being the main attraction of the place
the famous U Bein bridge, the longest in the world built in teak wood.
In this area is the monastery of Mahagandayon, a large-scale example of monastic schools throughout the country, with about 1,200 monks (mainly novices).
Later, continue excursion to Inwa, another ancient capital founded in 1364 and was the imperial capital for 400 years (although interrupted). Some of the most impressive ruins are the Leaning Tower of Ava, the Monastery of Maha Aungmye Bonzan or the Monastery carved in Teak of Bagaya Kyaung. However, many remains of different eras are found along a carriage route, pulled by horses, since it is not possible to reach the site by car.
Then, to Sagaing, was the capital of Shan Kingdom in the 14th century and briefly the capital in the 18th century, under the Konbaung dynasty. The city is located downstream from Mandalay and has a large name of interested stupas scattered on Sagaing Hill.
On the return, we will enjoy the beautiful sunset from the famous U Bein Bridge of Amarapura.
