Great private Day Trip to Sagaing Ava and Amarapura from mandalay

We had an excellent tour guide, Mr Myo, that we arranged through Mekong cruises tours . This was a very full day, but so interesting. He was able to fit in some extra things like a market visit to a tea shop where we could buy the best Myanmar tea, a noodle factory, a school, a walk through a village where furniture was made and a Nunnery. This was all besides the main Saigaing pagodas, the horse cart ride through Ava and the U Bein Bridge at sunset. He also recommended other things that made our stay in Mandalay most pleasant.Highly recommended this tour to anyone visit myanmar

I had an amazing day provided by Royal Gold Myanmar. My guide picked me at my hotel in Mandalay and took me to all the main attractions. Along the way he could explain a bit more of Myanmar habits and culture. WE
