tour details

Ride on secluded bike and horse trails as you traverse Bagan. You’ll quickly leave the sealed, busy roads behind and venture off onto dirt tracks. Aside from its temples, Bagan is still a buzzing little town and we’ll be sure to explore some of the traditions and lifestyles of its people. The village roads are lined with single-story bamboo houses standing adjacent to unique 1950s brick warehouses. Kids on a break from school, snack vendors and a menagerie of pigs, cows and the occasional horse will greet us along the way. We’ll stop to see the production of local treats and pay a visit to the friendly neighbours. We’ll cap off the morning with a visit to a tea shop where we will sample unique snacks and, of course, sip a cup of sweet Myanmar tea. The tour ends around noon time.
