Lacquerware-lovers will want to stop at Myinkaba (ျမင္းကပါ), Bagan’s most famous shopping zone. This otherwise sleepy village about half a mile south of Old Bagan has been home to family-run lacquerware workshops for generations. At least a dozen workshops and storefronts are located around the smattering of choice pahto (temples) and stupas from the early Bagan period. And King Manuha, respectfully called the ‘Captive King’, built the poetic Manuha Paya while held here in the 11th century.
