The last major IWT ferry stop before Mandalay is Kyaukmyaung (ေက်ာက္ေျမာင္း, pronounced 'Chao-miao'), famous for its distinctive glazed pottery. The pottery is produced in the delightful Ngwe Nyein district, a 20-minute stroll south along the riverside from central Kyaukmyaung’s attractive triple-stupa, Nondo Zedi. Traffic en route is mainly a procession of ox carts carrying firewood or rice husks for pot-firing.
