Overview

Joining this tour you will have a good chance to meet lots of local villagers, learn some traditional fishing techniques like how to cooperate between dolphins and the local fisherman, passing from generation to generation. During most the time of this tour, we provide an authentic social and cultural insight into the Burmese local way of life.Community lunch will be served at a local village. As well you will take part in some hands-on activities that are fun, safe and interesting to people of all ages.

Tour Details

After breakfast at your hotel, we will pick you up at 08.00 am by car. Our journey to Hsithe will take us north past Mandalay Hill. Passing through agricultural land, we drive through many villages, where you can see the daily life of rural Myanmar. The road passes to the east of the famous Marble Mountains, where the raw material for the marble carvers of Amarapura is quarried. At 10.00 am we arrive at Singu, an attractive small town on the left bank of the Ayeyarwady River. Here you will be met by the village boat from Hsithe. The boat trip is a great opportunity to observe wildlife, particularly water birds such as Ruddy shelduck, Chinese spot-billed duck, Asian open bill and many Black kites , ospreys and Cormorantsetc (most birds are migratory and the best time to see them is   late November-late March). We arrive in Hsithe at 10.45, in time for light refreshment in the Visitor Centre. This attractive building is positioned on the east bank of the river with panoramic views. Often dolphins can be observed, feeding in the waters opposite. Now you will learn to be a fisherman/woman!  The training lasts one hour but is great fun. First you will be shown how to cast a net and then it is your turn!! Using a light net, especially designed for the purpose, you will have two or three trial throws on ground adjacent to the centre. Then you go by fishing boat to shallow waters and practice your skills. Young or old, male and female, this is something you will enjoy and remember. Lunch is taken in the visitor centre. After lunch, you will have time to look round the many information boards that explain about life in the village: the fishing, farming and the local wildlife, especially the Irrawaddy River dolphin. It is also an opportunity to buy locally-made handicrafts in the visitor centre shop. In the afternoon, you will go for a tour of the village, which will be led by one of the villagers.

 

You can observe local village life in all its fascinating forms – the architecture, the people, the animals, the activities and the monasteries. It is a village of bullock carts, smiling children, and of communities going about their daily life – life which is little changed over the centuries. But sadly, it is now time for you to leave this timeless idyll. Once more you travel by boat. This time, you head upriver to Singu. The water birds look particularly beautiful in the afternoon light. You depart Singu at 16.15 pm and our delivered back to your hotel in

Mandalay by about 18.30 latest.
