It feel like there is a temple around every corner in old Bagan. Hire and e-bike(we paid $US7 for a whole day), get your camera ready and go exploring. You will love it. We went in the off season. The weather was great and there was hardly anyone here. The only big disadvantage is there are no balloons. :(

It costed us $25 for a 5-day trip/person. It seems quite high and wasteful if you just stay there 3 days or less. But the experience made up for it. Thousands of temples with different styles and different hidden stories that depends on your imagination. My favorites are: Shwesandaw, Htilominlo, Ananda, Summer palace ... Their names are too long to... More

I do not know how many of these are still standing after the recent quake. About a half hour by domestic flight from Yangon. Scenic, mythical & unmissable. You can ascend one of the spirals for a panoramic view of the complex. Breathtakingly beautiful! Or just meander leisurely amongst the temples in a hired bullock cart. My prayers is with... More

Everywhere you have a look there is a pagoda or temple. Is a must see in Burna or Myanmar. There are so many good hotel and guest house I suggest you rent a bike and watch the ancient temples get lost and enjoy the sun rise and the sun set.

A truly magical and mystical experience - thousands of temples dotted on a vast plain. Very much protected from mass tourism, adding to the out of this world experience. Do wait for the sunrise and sunset to capture the whole atmosphere on or off camera. Myanmar is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited.

Sunrise, sunset. sunrise, afternoon - it just doesn't get old. the Sights are incredible. We did some off-road bicycling and went through a small town and through sand to appear at the back entrance of a temple come sunset. It is all very worth it. We also lucked out and saw a fair the night we were leaving.Saw a death... More
