Explore the former Burmese royal capital of Inwa (Ava), reached by boat across the Myintge River. Today, little remains but segments of the old city walls and a handful of well-preserved monasteries peering from tree roots and cultivated fields. You'll visit the teak wood monastery of Bagaya Kyaung and make a photo stop in Amarapura, with personalized commentary and private transport from Mandalay.
  • 4-hour tour of Inwa (Ava) with a personal guide
  • Visit Bagaya Kyaung Monastery and the Leaning Tower of Inwa
  • Travel by boat and horse cart
  • Photo stop at U Bein Bridge near Amarapura
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off from Mandalay
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
Upon morning or afternoon pickup from your hotel lobby in Mandalay, depart by private vehicle for the 45-minute drive to Inwa, aka Ava. Following a short boat ride, you'll further explore the former royal capital by horse-drawn cart with your personal guide.
Discover the picturesque ruins and tranquil countryside while you sightsee at a relaxed pace. Visit the Bagaya Monastery of Kyaung, renowned for its ornate woodcarvings and teak posts, and see Maha Aung Mye Bon Zan, a former royal temple built of brick and stucco. From atop the centuries-old palace remains of Nanmyin (the Leaning Tower of Inwa), you'll find splendid views. 
On the return drive to Mandalay, stop for photo ops of locals strolling across the U Bein Bridge, an 18th-century teak footbridge that spans Taungthaman Lake near Amarapura. If time permits before hotel drop-off, ask your guide to accompany you to meet local artisans that weave silk and cotton or cast bronze in this region known for its handicraft industry.

The guide good but the tour was a little disappointed. My best advice, do not take a tour, hire a taxi and go to see the places you really want.
