This morning, meet our Asia Senses local guide at your hotel or Nyaung U Airport in case you catch early flight from Yangon or Mandalay. Formerly known as Pagan, Bagan is home to the largest and densest concentration of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins in the world. Approximately 2,200 of the originally 4,400 temples that are spread across the plains of Bagan.

Start your archeological tour with Shwezigon Pagoda, built by King Anawrahta in the early 11th as a religious shrine and Ananda Temple which is considered to be one of the most surviving masterpiece of the Mon architecture. Also known as the finest, largest, best preserved and most revered of the Bagan temples.

In the afternoon, drive to Minnanthu Village which is located near central Bagan. On arrival, meet with friendly and hospitality villagers who will take you around their village. It is a unique opportunity to observe their daily life: girls carrying water from the communal well, men are working in the fields with their ox, women rolling cigars to sell at the market and making woven bamboo picture frames, souvenir to sell to the visitors.

Afterwards, visit Tayokepyay Temple, Laymyatnar Temple, Nandaminnya and Payathonzu Temples which are located nearby the village. Enjoy the spectacular sunset while riding horse cart between the temples before returning to the hotel.
