Extension 7: Monywa
2 days / 1 night
Monywa is regarded as the most important town in the Chindwin Valley, and owes its name to the river Chindwin. It is a very important commercial town due to the amount of agricultural trade that occurs in the area. Likewise located 130 km Northwest is Mandalay, and relatively close to the town of Pakhoku, where we can easily reach Bagan by boat, so this extension is ideal between the two cities, combining rural and cultural visits.
There is a transfer by car to Monywa, which is located about 5 hours away from the ancient capital of the country, Mandalay. On route we will visit the spectacular temple of a reclined Buddha, located at the top of a hill, before transfer to the Win Unity Resort Hotel. After lunch we will visit the town of Monywa, including the Temple of Thanbode and the Bodhithahtaung Pagoda. There is also an opportunity to visit the caves of Po Win Taung which are very spectacular.
There is a transfer by car to Pakhoku, at the river Ayeyawaddy, to take a private boat to Bagan. Upon arrival in Bagan there is a transfer to the hotel.
