“A top destination in Myanmar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

Look for a horsecart (15.000 kyat) and spend the day, better a couple of days, visiting some of the temples and admiring the countryside: this is a magic place.

“Simply Awesome and Worth the Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

While not as spectacular as Ankor Wat, Bagan is close and worth the visit now when you can poke around and check out the temples and stupas with few other tourists or hassle.

“Hard to believe how many temples there are”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Loved Bagan from the first moment I saw a temple and realized everything I'd read was true. They are everywhere. The hot air balloon ride was a once-in-a-lifetime splurge that was a thrill from lift-off to the end of an exciting hour. What a way to see the temple-dotted landscape!
