Adventure or Pleasure, Bike your Leisure!
(1)Day-in Cycling to Twente(Yangon-Baung Daw Kya Snake Temple- Twente) Cycling for 5 hours
After driving about one and a half hour, you will reach a junction on the Dala-Twente Hi-way Road where your mountain bikes await you to taste a little bit of adventure.
The cycling trails will go through the villages whose people live from farming rice, betel leaves, weaving bamboo baskets and so on. We can visit some houses on our way. After about one hour, we will reach Baung Daw Choke Pagoda, Mid-water Pagoda sitting on a small lake that shelters some Boa Constrictors. After a short visit to that pagoda resting a little, the cycling trail will pass through the rice fields.
If you do it in the monsoon, it will be like ‘you ride the bike, the bike rides you back!’ situation. However, the trail we choose mostly is elevatedÂ platform that borders the land of the fields. After about 2 hours of Rice-fields crossing, on the way at somewhere in a village, you will see, the Oh Pho, or the kiln used in the 8th or 9th Century approximately to produce the Glazed Pots, or Sint Oh, by which the region, Twente, was and is famed for.
Then, continue your bike to Twente. Twente is still housing the Ceramics Factories in a certain part of the town. You may visit one or two of the factories to study how they prepare the ceramics, earth, and so on to get the best quality pots for exporting to nearby towns including the city of Yangon.
After excursion in the town, you will be transferred by car to go back to Yangon.

After driving for about an hour or so crossing the second longest bridge that spans the Yangon River to reach the town of Thanlyin and many other villages and towns from Yangon, you will get to the place where your bikes will be ready to rock and roll.
The trails of cycling tour will pass through the villages taking the inner village streets. You can study the village life all the way long how they make their livings; farming, handicrafts, and pottery as well.
After about one and a half hour, you will reach the Thit See Yeik village where the villagers live not only from agriculture, but also renting their houses to the Myanmar Cinema Producers to use as the model houses of the Villages in Myanmar. The village is situated in the valley and the village houses are fenced naturally with the bamboo trees that almost completely hide the house inside from the views of passers-by.
You may also visit one of the houses and talk to the owner for preparing a small picnic lunch. You may sometimes have a chance to talk with the movie making groups shooting when you arrive there at that house.
After a short rest, continue your cycling along the high-way road up to the town called Kyauk Tann. The town is famous for its mid-stream pagoda and thousands of pilgrims and visitors arrive to pay homage to that pagoda. It is believed that no matter how high the water level reaches, it never overflows the pagoda platform.
Sip a cold beer at a local restaurant that lies on the bank of Kyauk Tann river holding the view to the sacred pagoda in the middle.
Then, you will be transferred back to Yangon by car.
