It’s the time of year when we’re starting to see more of the sun and the outside temperature’s getting ever so slightly warmer. It’s therefore the time of year when we start looking ahead to our summer holiday. Where to go this year? Somewhere new, far-flung and more exotic? Why not take a trip to Burma, now known as Myanmar ? Myanmar is now welcoming tourists with open arms, and for tourists making the trip, you’re guaranteed a holiday like no other. One of the best ways to see the natural beauties of Burma is to travel across it by bike. If you’re up for a more active holiday then seeing Burma by bike comes highly recommended by our team .You can cycle and discover all that Myanmar has to offer. You can witness the colonial glory of Yangon, you can explore the daily lives of the local people who live around the Inle Lake, you can visit the Golden Rock, and you can explore the ancient Bagan, and much more.
Day 1: Yangon – Kyaikhto – Kyaik Htee Saung – Ancient City Wall – Golden Rock ( L , D )
After breakfast at your hotel(around 07:00 am), the car and our truck loaded with the Mountain Bikes will pick you up to start the taste of our A Liitle Bit of Adventure. It takes about 4 hours to reach Kyaikhto town where you start your biking tour to Kyaik Htee Saung pagoda.
From the main road, ready on your bike and equipped, turn to the rice fields to start the Unspoiled Biking Route to Kyaik Htee Saung Village. The scenes all the way to the Village relax you bit and piece and you never feel tired. Passing by the Mon Villages, you will arrive at the foot of Kaylartha Hill(The history and excavations strongly prove that on the other side of the foot of that hill lies the Thuwuuna Bhumi Kingdom, the Kingdom of the Gold!). Optionally, you can do hiking up the Kaylartha Hill for the awesome views to the Mataban Sea and Bay.
Afterwards, continue your ride on to the Ancient City Wall which is believed to be constructed in the 11th Century. Take a look at the mythical figures curved on the walls and take the photos. Then, you can pay a visit to Kyaik Htee Saung Pagoda.
