mandalay to bagan boat Day 2: Yandapo – Mount Tangyi
Early in the morning the ship will resume its course for Bagan. Stop at Yandapo, a small village at the edge of the Irrawaddy, which specializes in pottery making. It was in this village that the peace treaty ending the First Anglo-Burmese War (1824-1826) was signed on February 24, 1826; by which Burma lost Assam, Manipur, Arakan and Tenasserim. After visiting Yandapo, the cruise continues to the Mount Tangyi for the opportunity to experience lives and traditional activities on the Irrawaddy river. Upon arrival at the foot of Mt Tangyi where the boat drops anchor, walk or take a carriage ride to the summit which offers a beautiful view over the plain of Bagan. Dinner and overnight on board while enjoying the scenery of Bagan.
