tour description

Pick up from your hotel between 12:30 (Pick-up time will be varied depending on the season), transfer to the meeting point for bike fitting and safety briefing. After that, start cycling along tiny trails far from the tourist buses, away from the archaeological zone and visit the hidden remote villages. Of course monuments are not forgotten but in this tour, you will visit quiet ones, looking for atmosphere. Depending on the time of year, you may see ox-carts piled high with chillies or garlic being brought in from the fields or groups of school kids flying kites on their days off. This is true life in the dry zone, a scene rarely experienced by tourists to Bagan. A snack break in the shade of an ancient pagoda gives us a chance to refuel. The onward route tries to avoid the main paths and passes by many carefully selected viewpoints. The tour concludes with a private sunset boat ride on the Ayeyarwaddy River, leave the bikes to board the private sunset boat and head upstream while peacefully enjoying the inspiring sunset view with local cocktails and snacks on board. Afterwards, back to the jetty and an air-conditioned minibus will bring you back to your hotel.
