Full Day Mandalay Trip To Shwe Bo & Kyauk Myaung
Your car and VietLong guide will meet you at your hotel this morning for your excursion to Shwe Bo and Kyauk Myaung. The drive to Shwe Bo takes around 2.5 hours, passing through rural villages and crossing over the Irrawaddy River along the way. Shwe Bo served as the capital for King Alaungpaya during the 18th century and from here, the reconquest of Burma from the Mon began.
Upon arrival in Shwe Bo, we’ll start with a visit to the main local market. Shwe Bo is a major agricultural trading town with beans, rice and sesame being grown in the surrounding plains and the market is a hub of activity. We then visit Maw Daw Mying Pagoda, one of the most venerated pagodas in all of Myanmar. Located on Eindathaya Hill, Maw Daw Mying is taller than Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon and is gilded in gold.
Then visit to the ‘wishing grounds’, an auspicious spot believed to have been used by King Alaungpaya as a gathering point before battles. The locals come here to make offerings in hopes their wishes will come true. Finally we’ll visit Myo Daunt Zedi.
At midday we will stop for lunch at a local restaurant. Continue to Kyauk Myaung, a small town 27 km east of Shwe Bo that is famous for its glazed pottery including large Martaban Jars. These jars are used as containers to hold water, cooking oil and rice and are seen throughout Myanmar. We’ll visit a pottery workshop and head to the Irrawaddy riverbank to see how the pots are transported down river.
Then we begin the return drive to Mandalay, arriving late in the afternoon.
