Bagan by bicycle

Prepare to be astounded by Bagan, a grassy plain scattered with pagodas. A full day of cycling will take you to the city's most fascinating sites, including the teeming Nyaung Oo Market, the glittering Shwezigon Pagoda, and the atmospheric cave temple of Wetkyi-In Gubyaukgyi. In the afternoon, you'll peek into a traditional workshop to observe how lacquer ware is made, then visit the architecturally magnificent monastery of Ananda as the sun is setting.
