The entrance fee to Bagan is a bit expensive (25.000K), but the whole city is an archeological site with lots of intersting and beautiful temples, so I would say it’s definitely worth it! It was also interesting to do a free tour there (with Ostello...More

Bagan temples are definitely worth a visit. Driving around on e-bikes (electrical moped/scooter, not a bicycle) is the best way to explore. Traffic is easy going, but don't forget to honk. The pagodas around are in general well maintained, and combine very well with the...More

What else do you do in Bagan but visit temples via e-bike. It’s amazing, completely worth it. There are a few big ones, but mainly just go anywhere

The Shwe San Daw is the most famous Pagoda. Therefore it is crowded. Sundowns can be watched at other Pagodas too. Balloon flights start after the rainy season. Check their website for details.

You can easily rent an E-bike from a hotel, but not recommended if u have a kid with you! Taking a ride in Tuk tuk is an amazing experience too! The hote will surely help you out!
