Fun filled day discovering treasures and lifestyle of Bagan on two wheels. Our Bagan cycling tour starts with a pick up from your hotel in Bagan or from Bagan airport, transfer to Discovery DMC Bagan office in Nyaung U for bike fitting and short briefing. We cycle first to Nyaung U town & main market of Bagan. We make a stop at a little “Thanaka Museum” for a short introduction to Myanmar make up and its origins, tree bark. Next visit the shimmering gold gilded Swezigon Stupa, purported to contain a holy tooth relic of the Buddha. In Taung Bi village, which is a typical Bagan neighbourhood we make stops to learn how Rice noodles & Myanmar cigars “Cheroots” are made. After lunch break we continue to well-preserved Ananda temple often cited as the most beautiful temple in Bagan. Within short ride away is the Shwesandaw Pagoda, tall brick stupa offering perfect views over Bagan.
In the afternoon we continue on small and sandy lanes and tracks passing Dhammayangyi Pagoda through more remote temple sites to New Bagan and Myinkaba village and observe lacqueware making and learn about this traditional art and craftmanship Bagan is famous for.
For sunset, we climb to top of a temple that offers unparalleled photo opportunities of one of the richest archaeological treasures in Southeast Asia. The views are pure magic as the sun dips behind the temple ruins (weather permitting).
