This tour introduces to you the significant sights of the former ancient royal capitals, close to Mandalay: Amarapura, Sagaing, and Innwa, which have a great number of interesting sites and monuments.

Travel to the former royal capital Amarapura. Here you will visit the Mahagandayon Monastery, where thousands of monks study. The monastery is known for its strict adherence to the Vinaya, the Buddhist monastic code. It takes 7 to 10 years to complete the school of Mahagandayon monastery.

The next stop is the U-Bein bridge in Amarapura, one of the most popular photo spots for travelers in Myanmar. The 1.2-kilometer bridge was built around 1850 and is believed to be the oldest and longest teak-wood bridge in the world.

Continue the tour to Sagaing, the former capital of the Shan Kingdom during the 14th century. Sagaing is located opposite from Mandalay. To visit, you need to cross the Irrawaddy Bridge. Sagaing houses hundreds of beautiful stupas.

Innwa was founded in 1364 and had been the capital city for 400 years. The highlight of the destination includes the Maha Aung Mye Bon Zan Monastery. It was damaged by the earthquake in 1838 but was repaired in 1873 by Queen Sin Phyu Ma Shin. This monastery is one of the finest brick building decorated with floral ornaments.

The teak-wood monastery Bagaya Kyaung is a Buddhist monastery built on the southwest of Inwa Palace. This magnificent monastery is also known as Maha Waiyan Bontha Bagaya Monastery and gives an impressive example of the ancient arts of Myanmar. Today, it provides housing and schooling for children.
