Twante - Boat trip into the past  

Monks in a local "Taxi"

With the riverboat you will travel in the early morning to the delta of the Ayeyarwaddy (elephant river). In the Twante-canal you will come across old junks on the way from anywhere to somewhere. Along the riverbanks you will witness the day-to-day life of the fishermen and farmers. In the settlement of Twante - which is known in lower Burma for itís weaving and pottery - you will reach via horse-drawn carriage and bumpy road a great pagoda. Weaving mills and potter's workshops along the way. 

Here time seems to stand still; an Asia from the past century comes to life. Return to Yangon in the run of the afternoon. Overnight-stay.
