Traditional Burmese Village Experience

Experience what its like to grow your own food, live close to nature, with your hands in the earth on our Bagan farm tour. Enjoy a farm-to-table lunch, a tour of Mi Ta Zu Farm outside Bagan and join in the farm’s everyday activities.

Bagan Organic Farm Tour

Once in the village, we will spend most of our time on foot, visiting our neighbors in their workshops and on their farms. This one day experience is somewhere in-between a curated workshop, where we will be available for answering detailed questions and a normal afternoon on the farm with lots of physical activity and hands-on farming (if you want) to give you a taste of life on the farm.
