    Inwa/Ava is reached by road or boat crosses. Boat cross to the bike, although the longuis are made for then there rent a car pulled by a horse to visit pagodas and ruins. With the bike we were touring the sites and temples liked above all vegetation above.

As always, prices are, for us, very accessible. the remarkable sites tour lasts a little over an hour. Not dreaming, the carriage is totally uncomfortable but this is part of the package! We recommend the Maha Aungmya monastery... timeless and teak Bagaya monastery... Don't forget to take the picture that everyone will get to the pagoda Yedanasini Note: the driver does not speak English.
