A picturesque town, Salay has long been known as a key religious center in Myanmar. During your half-day experience, you will spend time exploring Salay’s numerous monasteries such as Yoke Son Kyaung, a wooden monastery which dates back to the 19th century.

You can take the time to admire the monastery’s wealth of beautiful carvings, which depict typical court life of Salay’s rulers and scenes from the Indian Ramayana epic.
