Your Experience

In the morning, after the breakfast at your hotel in Bagan we will be picked up by your guide and began the Salay Tour.

An essential part of any Myanmar tours is the chance to experience the local culture and way of life, which has remained unchanged for hundreds of years. Our Salay day tour begins with a visit to the nearby town of Chauk, where we will explore one of the largest markets in the region. With all manner of goods on sale, you will have the chance to explore at your own leisure and sample some of the local delicacies on offer.

Returning to Salay, we visit one of the most important of the town’s 50 active monasteries, Yoke Sone Kyaung. The oldest remaining wooden monastery in the region, this beautiful and unique building is now home to a wonderful museum hosting a range of artefacts from the Konbaung period. Having had the chance to explore this historic complex, we continue to the equally renowned Shin Pin Thar Long to visit a famous 13th-century lacquerware image of the Lord Buddha.

On our return journey, we have plenty of time to explore the historic British buildings that dominate much of the local landscape. As charming as they are beautiful, the colonial buildings evoke a sense of days gone by and tell the story of an important part of the region’s history. Before returning to our accommodation, we have the option of visiting a local plantation to witness palm sugar being produced using traditional techniques.
