Myanmar (Burma) // Bagan and the central plains //


If MONYWA is on tourist itineraries at all, then it’s generally because it makes a useful stopping-off point on the route between Bagan and Mandalay. The town itself has few specific sights other than its market and a couple of sizeable pagodas, but there are enough attractions close by to keep you busy for a day or two; it is also a hub for trips on the Chindwin River.
