    10:30-11:30:Shwenandaw Monastery - Embossed Teakwood Beauty
    Shwenandaw means “Golden Palace” because it was once part of the Royal Palace. No longer plated in gold, this monastery still exhibits intricately carved 19th-century architecture.

    Stop At: Kuthodaw Pagoda & the World's Largest Book, Mandalay Myanmar

    11:30-12:30:Kuthodaw Pagoda - Peruse the World's Largest Book
    Built in 1857, the exterior of this temple is completely covered in gold. The real treasure, however, is in the 730 marble structures that comprise the ‘book’ containing the whole of the Buddhist canon.

    As you meander through these rows of stupas, you will see that each tablet contains approximately 100 lines. When completed in 1868, the words on each stone were plated with gold. The gold was looted several decades later, but the tablets remained and are recognized as the world’s largest book.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Mandalay, Mandalay, Mandalay Region

    12:30-13:30:A Lunch Break.

A series of chambers for praying and making merit ring the roughly 75-foot-tall structure. The exterior walls are inlaid with arrays of carved amulets, sculpted leaves, and inscriptions.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Innwa, Amarapura Myanmar

    14:30-16:30:The Ancient City of Inwa - Travel to the Past on a Horse and Buggy.

    The driver will drop you at the river jetty just south of the Inwa Bridge. From there you’ll take a short ferry ride (1,300 Kyat round-trip) across the Mytinge River. Innwa, sometimes also referred to as “Ava”, is the former capital of the country, and its oldest buildings date back to the 14th century; but each renovation brought a new style of architecture. The splendor of the past can be seen in the huge fort walls, standing ever-vigilant around the old buildings.

    The visiting route covers around 6km, so taking a horse cart to get around the ancient city is mostly recommended (Optional). The price has been fixed at 10,000 Kyats ($7.40) for a 2-hour horse carriage tour around the area that includes the 4 main sites – Bagaya Monastery, Yandana Sine Pagoda, Nan Myint Watch Tower, and Mai Nu Monastery.

    Go back in time on a horse-drawn carriage to this ancient city. The enchantment here is the glimpse of history you get from a city which was destroyed by invasions and earthquakes, and later rebuilt.

    Here you can also see the Maha Aung Mye Bonzan monastery. Unlike its counterparts, this marvel was made of brick. The entrance is guarded by stone chinthes and its ornate design makes it a must-see for any traveler.

    Duration: 2 hours

For a nice change of pace, stroll across Taungthaman Lake on the longest teak bridge in the world. The water levels vary according to the season, but the lake will always give you a sense of serenity.
