Bagan offers a unique travel experience to those that make the journey to this spectacular plain in central Myanmar. A place that captures the heart of any visitor with its peppering of sun kissed temples, crumbling architecture and friendly communities. You begin your journey with a horse-cart ride around Bagan for an authentic and memorable start to this tour of Myanmar. We travel between a number of villages and pagodas before residing at a temple to watch a spectacular sunset over the plain from its veranda.

Continue your tour of Myanmar by further exploring the temples of Bagan. With over 2000 and a number of quaint villages and local workshops there is plenty to see and do. After breakfast we visit the Nyaung U Market, where amid the produce stalls are local toys and other handicrafts that kids love to explore amongst. Then we visit some child friendly pagodas where glittering gold colored stupas can be admired. We also venture into Kyan Sitthar cave temple, walking through the tunnel-like corridors and viewing the fading paintings on the ceiling. A short stop at Lawkanandar Sanctuary is always popular with children, this animal sanctuary is home to several unique star tortoises.

Leaving the temples behind, we begin the drive to Mt Popa and check into Popa Mountain Resort. Surrounded by forests with a fantastic swimming pool, this is the perfect place for any family to relax and unwind. Join the pilgrims as they ascend Mt Popa and admire the crazy statues that line the walk along with the monkeys that live on the mountain. Once at the peak guests can relax and bask in the glorious views of Bagan. We then return to Bagan for a short cruise along the Irrawaddy River at sunset.
