What you can expect

Discover Amarapura on a half-day tour of the city with an expert guide. See where a thousand monks live and study at the Mahagandayon Monastery, and visit the famous U Bein Bridge. Go to a silk- and cotton-weaving workshop and watch how the fabrics are made, before seeing a collection of Buddha statues.

Begin your day with convenient pick-up from your Mandalay hotel, then enjoy the short 30-minute journey to Amarapura. Listen as your guide tells you about the lives of the monks at the famous Mahagandayon Monastery. Continue on to marvel at one of the largest teak bridges in the world, U Bein Bridge, which was built in 1782 at a time when Amarapura was the royal capital.

In current times, Amarapura is known for its silk- and cotton-weaving industry. Visit a traditional hand-woven silk workshop, where you have a chance to see the experts creating the beautiful fabric. Your final stop is the Bagaya Monastery, which has a superb collection of Buddha statues. Return to Mandalay comfortably in an air-conditioned vehicle.
