Have the option of taking a balloon over Bagan at sunrise before heading to the bustling market in Nyauang U market. Head to Myinkaba, a village just south of Old Bagan, which again features a thriving market and where you can also head to the local Monastery and have a cup of tea and snacks away from the tourists. Head back to Bagan for lunch, where we suggest visiting the Shwe Gu orphanage seeing the young monks sit down for their meal. Head onto another village where you will see the process of creating ‘poneyay’, a pea-powder paste, the making of plum jam and the construction of traditional bullock-carts. You can then explore more of the temples at your own leisure, or return to the hotel.
