world-heritage-site-01 world-heritage-site-02 world-heritage-site-03

After early breakfast, highway drive (286 Km, 5 Hours) to PYAY (Prome), situated near the ancient capital of SRI KSETRA (Thayekhittaya), which flourished between 5th and 9th century and where extensive archaeological excavations have taken place. En-route stops at villages to learn the daily life of the people more closely. Also visit SHWEMYETHMAN PAGODA (which is home to a most unusual Buddha image – one who wears gold-rimmed spectacles) in SHWE TAUNG, a small town before and close to Pyay.
In the evening, visit SHWESANDAW PAGODA, which is similar in design to Shwezigon in Bagan, and is one of the most sacred Buddhist pilgrimage spots in Myanmar. An enormous seated Buddha figure rises up from the tree line adjacent to Shwesandaw which is called SAEHTUTGYI PAGODA.
If time permit, walk along the strand road on the bank of Ayeyarwaddy River. Then stroll through small and crowded night market selling varieties of fruits, vegetables and local snacks before returning to your hotel.

After breakfast, drive to north to Magway (200 km/ 4 hours drive). The road passes through more beautiful rural scenery dotted with small towns. Along the way stop at BEIKTHANO which is one of the old states of Pyu Ancient City-State, from the east bank of Ayeyarwaddy River and in the middle portion of the arid central plain of Myanmar. It is one of the best examples of early Pyu civilizations and there are rhombus-shaped city walls stretching more than 2 miles in each direction. Inside the walls are large, crumbling brick structures whose design reflects monastic buildings from South India as well as unique burial grounds.
Proceed to Magway, upon arrival transfer to hotel for check-in. MAGWAY is well known for its production of both groundnut and sesame oils, earning itself the nickname, ‘Oil pot of Myanmar’.
