"Inwa" Myanmar (Burma) Things to Do Tip by worldtraveler55

Myanmar (Burma) Things to Do: 467 reviews and 936 photos


Cut off from roads by rivers and canals, the ancient city of Inwa served as capital of the Burmese Kingdom for nearly 400 years, longer than any other city.
The only way around the scattered sites is via horse cart - making a clockwise loop through the old gate and past a hanful of sites - but it offers a more revealing glimpse into thatched-hut village life than the other ancient cities.
Beside the road, villagers till the soil where the royal palace once stood; others fish and bathe in inland ponds near ruined stupas.
