Explore the ancient capital of Bago on a day trip from Yangon

Bago is full of ancient monuments that have been well kept so it gave us the opportunity of visiting a monastery, a few golden Payas, a reclining Buddha and a Bhuddhist temple in a relaxing and quiet way and it was a breath of fresh air after our experience in the chaos of Yangon.
