Tamarind tour guide will pick you up at your resident or hotel and drive to Bago.
Bago was a capital of the Mon Kingdom founded in 15th century, formerly Burma’s greatest seaport.
Bago is 80 kilometers from Yangon, and a leisurely excursion from Yangon can be completed in a day trip.
Legend says that Bago used to be a tiny island off the coast in the Gulf of Martaban.
It was such a small place, that there was only room enough on the island for one Hamsa, (hintha- mythical bird). The male bird had to perch his mate upon his back to accommodate both Hamsas.
When you visit Bago, you will see the bird figures as a signature of Bago City.
