Private Half-Day Tour: A Local Experience in Salay

What to Expect
Start the day with 8:30am pickup at your hotel in Bagan, where you’ll meet a private driver-guide for the trip to Salay, which is 22 miles (35 kilometers) south of the city. This private tour offers the flexibility to customize the experience to your interests, with plenty of time to explore Salay’s fascinating history and religious culture. Visit some of Salay’s monasteries to get a glimpse the unique Theravada Buddhist traditions that infuse daily life for much of the country—including this deeply religious town of 10,000, which has around 50 monasteries. At Yoke Son Kyaung, the oldest surviving wooden monastery in Salay, you’ll see carvings that depict court life, and dramatic scenes taken from the Ramayana, an ancient Indian epic poem. Tour the local market, and soak up the historic atmosphere of the town, whose many colonial buildings have been largely untouched, offering a window into Myanmar's British-ruled past. This 4-hour Salay tour concludes with return transfer to Bagan, and drop-off at your hotel at roughly 12:30pm.
