Bago Day Tour: Temples & pagodas in Bago and a train ride back

Bago used to be the capital of Myanmar under king Bayinnaung (till 1819).

It is an excellent place to visit and see the remains of a former capital, especially if you don’t have enough time to visit Mandalay or Bagan.

Stop at a local market in Insein township just north of Yangon to buy some fruits and snacks.

Visit to pay respect to the thousands of allied soldiers buried at the Taukkyan War cemetery.

Visit the Kyatkha Wain monastery, which is one of the largest in the country.
