1 DAY TAUNGGYI & AYTHAYA VINEYARD (M, A)
Over 1,430 meters above sea-level, is the capital of Shan State in the eastern part of Myanmar. A hill station known for its scenic beauty, Taunggyi is cool and pleasant all the year round. There are pines, cherry and eucalyptus trees growing all over the town and the whole area is green and pleasant. The busiest part of Taunggyi is the Myoma Market, a place where people from the environs used to flock only once every five days to buy and sell their regional products. Now it has become a daily market and is constantly crowded with people. It is also the gathering point of different national races residing in Taunggyi. Another interesting place to visit in Taunggyi is the Cultural Museum where cultural objects, musical instruments, traditional dresses, household and farm implements, paintings, sculptures, arts and crafts of the different national races residing in Shan State can be seen. There are also 'Hawnans" (palatial residences) where the Shan Sawbwas (Shan Chieftains) used to live can also be observed. Lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon visit the Aythaya vineyard, around 15 minutes’ travel below Taungyyi. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chenin Blanc have been nurtured here for a few years under the supervision of German experts. Dinner at the Aythaya Vineyard and transfer back to your hotel.
