    Morning boat trip to visit Mingun unfinished pagoda, explore further key sites of Mandalay, sunset at Mandalay hill

This morning we will be driven to Mandalay pier, and then embarked on a private boat upstream to Mingun. Our first stop in Mingun is the world’s largest unfinished Pahtodawgyi Pagoda. The pagoda's lower terraces feature slabs of marble bearing depictions of important scenes from the Jataka, literary works concerning the previous lives of the Buddha. Inside the temple, you can see an inscription stone that details the history of the temple's construction. Leave the pagoda, we will head to Mingun Bell which has a weight of 90 tons. Then if time permits, don’t miss the chance to drop by Hsinbyume Pagoda (White elephant pagoda), a beautiful all white structure just a few minutes walking away from Mingun pagoda.   

After lunch break, we continue our journey to Mandalay PalaceShwenandaw Monastery, and a gold leaf beating workshop. We also go to Kuthodaw pagoda which houses the world’s largest book stand upright, setting in stone in the grounds. At dusk, if weather is fine, it would be an interesting end for the fourth sightseeing day if we climb up to the Mandalay Hill to enjoy the beautiful sunset and the panorama of the city behind.

Explore the uncompleted Mingun pagoda

Sailing upwards the mighty Irrawaddy river from Mandalay, Mingun unfinished pagoda will soon catch your eyes in with its massive compound setting near the riverbank. Get off the boat, we will take you to discover all secrets behind the largest pagoda in the country and probably in the world if finished, the overriding ambition of King Bodawpaya, the reason why it was eventually left abandoned, the great architecture from finest brick works and the largest working giant bell inside. If you wish, it is also possible to climb to the top of pagoda and have splendid views of surrounding landscape.
