Discover the best of Mandalay and Amarapura on a full-day tour that covers all the highlights of this spectacular region. Visit landmarks including Mahagandayon Monastery, U Bein Bridge, Mahamuni Pagoda and Shwenandaw Monastery with a guide who facilitates the details so that you can enjoy the sights.

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.

Upon arrival back in Mandalay, visit the sacred Mahamuni Pagoda, which is a major pilgrimage site located in the southwest of the city. Afterward, visit the Shwenandaw Monastery, which was built in 1878 by King Thibaw Min. It is mostly known for its artistic wood carvings. The Kuthodaw Pagoda is the world's largest book as it is surrounded by 729 stone slabs in which Buddhist scriptures were engraved.

If time permits, we walk up to Mandalay Hill, known for its abundance of pagodas and monasteries. The panoramic view of Mandalay from the top of Mandalay Hill makes it worth to attempt a climb up its stairways.
