From Sagaing we went to Inwa, which was the capital of the Burmese kingdom for almost 400 years. The whole area is cut off from roads by rivers and canals, so the only way to get around was by horse and cart. We visited a number of ruins and stopped at local houses along the way.
We also visited the Bagaya Kyaung monastery which is made from teak.
From Inwa we travelled to the final stop of the day, Amarapur, which was Myanmars penultimate royal capital. The area is famous for the 150 year old teak bridge that that goes across Taungthaman Lake to Amarapur. The bridge is 1.2km along and provides great people watching opportunities.
