There are currently about 200 women operating horse wagons for tourists in Inwa, Mandalay Region.
The horse-cart gate is located in Ohtoktaw Ward and many operators are able to effectively communicate with tourists as they have been taking foreigners for scenic rides for decades.
A horse-cart ride costs foreigners Ks 10,000 and tourists are welcome to take photos of the horse-cart drivers. Horse-cart drivers typically make two trips per day.
Most of the rides feature four famous tourist sites in the ancient city. If tourists wish to deviate from their set route, it costs extra, said a woman horse-cart driver.
