Early Breakfast at Hotel. Early morning transfer to the airport for domestic flight to Bagan. Arrive at Nyaung U Airport and transfer to Myitche, a typical Irrawaddy River village with many cottage industries. Stop for a visit at the morning market, a huge, colorful market selling everything from fresh
goods to handicrafts. This is a very local market and the vendors will be surprised to see tourists as very few go. There are many delicious treats being made, a good chance to try the local snacks. Nearby there is a small village where the locals weave house wares from rattan (or cane) and we will make a short stop there to see the production. Continue by boat to Pakkoku. The land surrounding the Irrawaddy in this area is extremely fertile with fields growing tobacco, cotton, chili and peanuts. Depending on the time of year the locals may be planting, harvesting or processing the crops and there are plenty of chances to stop and interact with the local farmers. Arrive in Pakkoku at midday and lunch time at your own account. Afterwards, explore the quaint town of Pakkoku with an opportunity to see Thanakha Market and cheerot makers. Next, it’s time to take a break from the midday heat and cruise back down the Irrawaddy River by boat (approximately 2 hours). Put your feet up, relax and enjoy this scenic stretch of the river reaching Bagan mid-afternoon where you will be transferred back to your hotel. Overnight at hotel.
