Cycling to the East
The majority of this environmentally responsible travel makes use of the bike, so the carbon footprint is lower than a private vehicle tour.
Start early morning cycling all the way from Mandalay after the breakfast at your hotel, once the capital of Myanmar monarchy, to the outskirt of the city towards Patheingyi, an agriculture-based small town near Mandalay.
Everywhere on your bike, you will be greeted by smiling Myanmar faces, and some local may wave their hand to say hellos.
Adjusting the many motorbikes and car that crowd its roads in Mandalay city can be slightly unsettling at first, but once you go with the flow, you will be able to relax and enjoy a human-powered spectacle to marvel at. The first stopover is one of local market call ”Nan Shae” market where you can discover a variety of local shops such as fruits, vegetables, banana & coconut, and other commercial goods.
A 50 km detour on the journey from Mandalay to Patheingyi takes you through local villages and tranquil rice fields in endless shades of green where the villagers are working as their daily work in the paddy farms. Then we will get on the bank of the central canal which flow from Sedawgyi reservoir along the green paddy fields. We can even stopover somewhere along this pleasurable canal with the sound of the streaming and the atmosphere that make you relax.
The next stop is at one of the monasteries called ”Mya Kyauk monastery” where mineral water coming out from the earth and water is clean and drinkable. Cycling back to Mandalay and have your lunch at the tea shop which also available the local eats. Then back to your hotel for a while to rest of 1-2 hours.
Cycling west edges of city
Again in the evening at about 3 pm, your tour guide will meet you again and continue cycling to the backend of the city to explore more social experience along the legendary Irrawaddy riverside. Marvelous views extend across the Irrawaddy to Sagaing and the Mingun Hill on the river west bank, studded with the pagoda and the monastery. So this final stop of the tour represents not just the heart of Mandalay but the riverbank of the Irrawaddy. Then enjoy the sunset at the bank of Irrawaddy river and end the tour at your hotel.
