The temple interiors are often filled with rows of Buddha, images of guardian Nats or spirit gods and intricate murals depicting the life of Buddha and scenes of royalty.

We enjoy local lunch at one of the small local restaurants and perhaps visit the world’s only Thanakha (traditional Myanmar make up) museum where we learn in-depth about how this powder/paste was made and why they are so much in to part of the daily life for Myanmar people. You will also visit a lacquer-ware workshop and learn about the long and arduous process of making bowls and trays that often take months to complete.
