    Boat across the canal to Old Inwa

    Crossing across from the "mainland" road to Inwa is a short ride in this little boat across the manmade channel/canal, which takes only a few minutes, and runs on demand.

    You can see the eager horse and buggy drivers awaiting the tourists on the boat - ie. us!! How to choose?

    Taxi from Mandalay

    We had our taxi and unofficial guide for the 3 days in Mandalay take us to Inwa early on the day we left - as this site is enroute to the airport - roughly. You need a comfortable half a day to see both Inwa and Amarapura. There are various points of interest in the area, and well worth having your own driver, to both point them out, and stop if you wish.

    To actually get across the channel to Inwa, you get a small boat, which slowly shunts across the waterway several times a day - not to timetable, but demand.

    Trusty Steed

    Once you get off the small ferry, there is a line up of horse and carts for hire - the best way to get around the ruins of Inwa. We paid $3 (set price) for the hire of the horse and driver. The owner sat outside his house and watched his drivers go out and in - and was obviously counting the journeys to ensure that he was given his fair take for the day!

    Our driver was a helpful fellow, who stopped frequently, indulging the shutterbug, so we tipped him nicely!

    You could walk

    Inwa Road

    You could easily walk to Bagaya Kyaung if you don't want to take a horse cart. The roads are easy to follow and quite shaded by trees for most of the trip. The locals seemed quite friendly. I didn't walk but I was thinking at the time that it would be nice just because of the shaded roads.

    Boat Captain?

    My son wanted to drive the boat across the river but the boat captain figured he better do it! LOL You have to take a small ferry boat to get to Inwa. It is very cheap...100 Kyat or so I don't really remember.

    Take the Horse cart to Bagaya Kyaung

    Road to Bagaya Kyaung

    The ride to Bagaya Kyaung is quite beautiful. Not only to you get the herky jerky feeling of riding in the Horse cart you can take in the beautiful scenery along the way. In one section of the road it is overgrown with trees and covers the road completely so you won't have to deal with the hot afternoon sun if you're there at that time.

    You will want to stand ahead of the engine room if you ride on the ferry boat in Inwa. The engine produced lot's of smoke that didn't seem to bother the engine man. cough cough!!
