Bago Day Tour

Visit in Bago begins at ShwethalYaung Temple which houses a beautiful 55-meter long reclining Buddha.

Take a short visit to a nearby Mon neighborhood, a charming, quiet area typical of many rural neighbourhoods in Myanmar.

Mon-style Shwemawdaw Pagoda, one of the most venerated in Myanmar and whose 114 meter spire is taller than the one at Shwedagon Pagoda.

Witness a traditional nat dance. (Note: Schedule depends upon donor offering; can only be confirmed one day before arrival).

Next, visit Bago’s strangest, and some would say creepiest, sight.

Nearby Kanbawzathadi Palace, the Snake Monastery is a pilgrimage site to see the 9 meter, and reportedly century old, Burmese Python.
