Before rejoining the ship for lunch, stroll through the small village that is home to Belmond's private jetty near Old Bagan. You may wish to visit Belmond's free clinic, where our onboard doctor will be treating local patients. In the afternoon visit Ananda, one of Bagan's most magnificent temples. Continue your tour as you explore an off-the-beaten-track temple by torchlight. End your visit by admiring the sunset over the plains.
