Fascinating Inwa

Inwa is a cool place to visit. I got here via my hired taxi from Mandalay and I had this place included on my Ancient cities tour. The Inwa trip starts out by taking a Ferry boat ride across the river. Then we took a beautiful horse cart ride to Bagaya Kyaung which is an awesome Teak Monastery. There are many smaller Pagodas and other ruins in the area too!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Teak Monastersy
  • Cons:none
  • In a nutshell:Very cool!

    Scott, Inwa is so amazing. So many lost treasures. I wonder why UNESCO doesn't considere it world heritage. Inwa deserves it better than many other places. Lovelly
