Meet your personal guide and driver at your hotel lobby in the afternoon, and settle in the comfort of your private vehicle for a 4-hour tour of several significant religious sites in and around UNESCO-listed Bagan.
The Shwezigon Pagoda, or Shwezigon Paya, is your first stop. This Buddhist temple located outside Bagan was built in the early 11th century as a Burmese shrine. Marvel at the gilded stupa painted in gold leaf before moving on to see the superb murals of Jataka scenes featured at the Gubyaukgyi Temple.
Then stop by the ruins of Bu Lei Thee Pagoda. From this viewing platform you're treated to splendid vistas of temples and pagodas that dot the plain below. Venturing onward you'll come to the Ananda Temple, one of four well-preserved temples remaining in Bagan, featuring four magnificent standing Buddha images.
Shwesandaw Pagoda is your final stop. To reach the top of the temple, visitors are required to climb some steep stairs, but the sunset views over the Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwady) River are worth it. Afterward, you're returned to your hotel in Bagan.
