During this adventure, you will be exposed to local arts and crafts, having the opportunity to talk with artists and witness them at work. You will also visit small villages where in many ways life goes on unchanged from centuries past.

Vantage Adventures shows you the sites you've come so far to see, then takes you beyond them so you can experience the real Burma, up close and personal! Visit a school where winsome children welcome you into their classroom. Learn about life along the fabled river when you visiting village, or ride an oxcart to a temple. Immerse yourself in traditional arts during a colorful Burmese dance show and a puppet performance. Enjoy a sunset sampan cruise with splendid views of the famous U-Bein bridge. Join us, and see how Vantage Adventures opens up the world to you!


Pax bikingBiking in Bagan
You can travel as the Burmese do, get a little bit of exercise, and enjoy a whole lot of fun when you explore Bagan by bike. The roads are flat and lead between the villages and many temple sites, making for great scenery along the way. (Heat and dust can be a concern, as some paths are not paved and sandy.) There are many outlets in town where bikes can be rented for as little as $2 a day. Some even offer electric bikes (E-bikes) for the ultimate in ease. See the sample bike map below, and ask your Adventure Leader to point you in the right direction.
