Old Capital of Burma

Burma's old capital

University of Yangon Department of Historical Studies. The former capital is a great introduction to local life in the Burmese countryside as you drive through many small villages amidst the ruins of Ava. Today, three capitals of Pyu are in a better state of preservation than the Mon cities. To a foreigner, Myanmar's history has been as suppressed as that of its people for half a century. In the course of history, this old capital has been plundered and rebuilt several times.

ancient capital of Burma - Innwa, Amarapura Traveller Review

Innwa (or Ava) was the capital of the Myanmar Empire for a while. At the same elevation, there is now a new road link for road haulage to the city of sagaing. It was so beautiful to pass through the villagers "mingguhlaba" and to share a beautiful hello! We had a tailback of bogies waiting for tourists for the regular trip through this part of the islands, with restricted means of travel (although they were described as missing cars, there were quite a few motorcycles and some cars).

It was a similar riding adventure to our Bagan but the riders we saw don't seem to be respecting their riding style (their investment). It was astonishing when the dazzled bangs and the car went straight into a puppy on the sidewalk at full throttle. When you walk here, please don't take the photograph of the chauffeur, choose your chauffeur with care and ask him to be friendly to your fringe and other animals while in the car.

The ride in the coach lasts about 30 minutes. The coach seems to be the only way to visit the town.
