Cross the river by ferry to Inwa (Ava), situated on the banks of the Irrawaddy River. Once a royal capital, Inwa (Ava) is now a quiet rural oasis. Enjoy a leisurely horse and cart ride around the peaceful countryside, visiting Maha Aungmyay Bonzan Kyaung, Nan Myint Tower and Bagaya Kyaung, a beautiful teak wood monastery. On the way, stop and observe how local artisans make the famous alms bowls out of iron.
Finally, return to Amarapura to end the day at U Bein’s Bridge, a picturesque teak bridge which extends one kilometre across Taungthaman Lake. At dusk, the bridge teems with monks and local people as they stroll home or linger to enjoy the colours of the sunset.
