There you will find a dug-out dinghy that will take you back across the lakes. All boaters seem to know the borer and will oscillate far so that you can get an idea of the length of the viaduct, and then enjoy hanging around on the waters until you get the required candlelight.
Sailing on the west side of the lagoon is less expensive than on the east side (even on a one-sided return trip), so don't put yourself under pressure to organize with the guide who will always come close to your vehicle on your first arrival in Amarapura.

but if your ship is taking the normal touristic route across the sea, it will be hard to miss.
It is almost more attractive than the convent itself.
Myanmar coronation and the country's holiest Buddhist site, Shwedagon Lagoon, is growing out of the overcrowded, dust laden city of Yangon like a gold-plated eater.
