Plenty of historical sites on island. Good to get around in horse carriage. Need to be aware of the time limit as additional charges will be imposed. Better to have guide to explain the historical cultural stories

Innwa turns out to be the highlight of our trip. You need to take a boat to Innwa and afterwards, we took the horse carriage. The two temples included in the trip are very impressive.

Visited here for the sunset from Sinkyone Fortress. Almost tourist free though it was a weekend. The horse cart ride took us to see some lovely views of the ponds and villages too.
