Exploring Burma by bike will allow you to see and experience the very best of the country, and you’ll have the opportunity to meet the friendly locals along the way. Myanmar, as it is now known, has a varied landscape and rich cultural history, a real sense of which you can discover on a cycling tour.

If you’re keen to discover this country in South East Asia by bike then Ayuda Myanmar Travel has a range of cycling tour holidays to choose from. Our Cycling Day Tour focuses on Yangon, while we also operate another day tour around the Inle Lake. If you want a longer, fuller cycling tour then our ‘Best Bike Tour’ allows you to see most of the important tour sites in Myanmar, including the cities of Mandalay and Bagan.
Myanmar is a territory previously unexplored by outsiders, but it is now on many peoples’ ‘must-see’ destination lists. Much of Myanmar has been closed off to travellers for at least the last forty years, but now you can explore the best of what this country has to offer – and it doesn’t get much better than seeing it by bike.

Mandalay Day Cycling Tour - Amarapura / Sagaing / MingunIn the morning, at the appointed time, our driver with cycling guide bringing the mountain bikes will come to your hotel to pick you up at your hotel in Mandalay.

Today Excursion is by Bike to the Ancient capitals of Amarapura aka the Southern City, the ancient Royal Capital before Mandalay. In Amarapura, visit one of the biggest monasteries with more than 1200 Buddhist monks where under the strict tight-scheduled Rules the monks study very hard the Buddhist Canons day and night in order to be able to carry on the Budda’s teachings verbally like the Noble Theras did after the Buddha’s demise in the 6th Century B.C. Then visit the Silk- Weaving workshop. Here, Amarapura hand-weaving silk Designs are very famous as Lun Yar Kyaw Cheik, More-than-hundred Loom Design, in which many small colorful silk thread looms wave through the weft creating the unique Myanmar Ceremonial silk longyis. Depending on the designs, to finish a longyi with a hundred or so looms, it can take at least a month! Then drive to U Bein Bridge believed to be the longest wooden bridge in the world that spans Taung Thaman Lake. Take a walk on the bridge and enjoy a photo opp!

And then ride the bike to Sagaing crossing over newly-opened bridge paralleling the first British- built Span side by side. Sagaing, the capital city of Sagaing Division, has been quite a few times Royal Capital and now stands as a Buddhist Center. Visit Sagaing Hills filled with Meditation Centers, Monasteries, and Nunneries. The view from the platform of Sun Oo Punya Shin Pagoda that takes the overwhelming hilltop is really breath-taking. Then visit U Min Thoe Sal, 30 Caves Pagoda.

Picnic Lunch will be provided on the way!

And then continue to Mingun where the World’s Biggest Mingun Bell, weighing over 90 Metric Tons that is believed to be the world heaviest hanging bell in the world and Migun Stupa unfinished due to the mysterious beliefs of its builder. Then, visit the very first Home for Aged founded purely by a Burmese Lady. Meeting with the long-term nurse who speaks fair English at the Center of Old Age pays a lot. Finally visit Mya Thein Dan Pagoda which represents famous Mt. Meru according to Buddhist Cosmology.

After that, take the boat back to Mandalay along the Ayeyarwaddy River and enjoy the river life.
