Day 1: Bagan Community Tour

After breakfast at your hotel, your guide and driver will pick you up to start your Bagan day trip. You’ll first visit the Nyaung U market, a busy morning market where locals gather from surrounding villages to buy and sell produce, crafts, spices and other goods. Stop for a cup of tea in a local tea house, a key part of daily life in Myanmar and a great place from which to observe the busy morning activities. From Nyaung U continue to Ngat Pyit Taung Monastery and explore the temple’s caves to observe about local tradition and spiritual beliefs of the Burmese. Then, visit the Monastic Primary School where you can visit with the local children who are studying their lessons. Be greeted by their warm smiles and enjoy playing with and meeting the students. Although friendly and welcoming, the children come from a very underprivileged area and a small donation of cash or school supplies will ensure a brighter future for these students. Lunch at local restaurant. This afternoon, explore the town of Nyaung U and neighboring villages where you will learn about their traditional livelihood. Learn the interesting process of creating “Poneyay” (pea powder paste) and see how local plum jam is made and packed. In addition, visit workshops of two of the region’s best known products: handmade lacquer ware and wooden handicrafts. In addition, you will visit the villages and observe about how Cartwrights make a traditional bullock carts, still used by farmers and locals throughout the country. A great afternoon for hands-on activities, as the craftsmen loves to share their techniques with visitors. (L) End of Bagan Community Tour.
