Head off for a half-day exploration of Bagan. Although a quick tour, you’ll still see a range of sites, offering a great overview of Bagan’s history, culture and local lifestyles.

The journey begins with a visit to the golden stupa of Shwezigon Pagoda for an introduction in to Bagan’s rich history. Then, visit to nearby Wetkyi-In Gubyaukgyi, a cave temple with exquisite jataka mural paintings. Each of these sites reflects a different style and interesting history.

Then get to learn more about the local culture with a visit to two workshops producing Bagan’s most famous products: lacquer ware and wood crafts. Watch as the skilled craftsmen use techniques passed down through generations to create beautiful items.

Finally you will visit a local village and observe about how Cartwrights make traditional bullock carts, still used by farmers and locals throughout the country. The friendly locals are always keen to interact with visitors.
