Pick-up at your hotel, start to bike through the heart of Mandalay city to the Mingun jetty and embark boat journey on the Ayeyarwaddy river to Mingun about 11 km (1 hour) up river from Mandalay. Then, it’s time to unload the bikes and start cycling to the main sites of Mingun.

Beginning with the famous Mingun Pahtodawgyi, this huge brick structure was left unfinished after an astrologer predicted the then reigning king would die should the temple be completed. In the 1800s, an earthquake left several large cracks in the structure giving it the iconic fractured appearance it has today.

Afterwards, continue to the beautiful white Hsinbyume Pagoda, whose distinctive style is meant to resemble the mythical Mount Meru. Afterwards, view the Mingun Bell which weighs 90 tonnes and is considered the world’s largest uncracked ringing bell.

After a short rest, continue biking to Sagaing. Covered with 600 white-painted pagodas and monasteries, Sagaing Hill is widely regarded as the religious centre of Myanmar. It is home to 3,000 monks and 100 meditation centres. Visit pagodas such as Swan Oo Pon Nya Shin and U Min Thone Sae.

Then ride towards Amarapura, a former capital whose name means ‘City of Immortality’. Visit a silk-weaving workshop which produces exquisite handmade products and then continue to U Bein Bridge for a walk along this iconic 2000-year old teak structure.

The bridge was constructed of 984 teak wood posts that were once part of the deserted Inwa Palace. At 1.2 kilometres in length, it’s the world’s longest teak wood construction. Enjoy a stroll along the bridge and the fabulous sunset views of Taungthaman Lake and the surrounding countryside.
