tour description

Pick up from your hotel around 07:30 hours and start with a bike fitting and short safety briefing at Grasshopper shop. Set off to visit the local market, which is in full swing. Then, ride out of town on the back streets before getting out and onto the first sandy trails of the Monument Zone. You will make several stops to see what's interesting along the way; Visit Ananda, Shwezigon and Dhammayangyi which are most significant temples, marvelling at the workmanship of the construction and beautiful internal decoration. Pass through typical villages and see what the locals are up to as you pass off the beaten track. After a full tour of the complex, head into the backstreets where newly built dwellings sit beside original bamboo houses and brick warehouses dating from the 1950s, making an interesting architectural mixture. At the end of your biking journey, you will be brought to a local tea shop to taste simple local food and Myanmar sweet tea. After that, transfer back to your hotel.
