Safe friendly and historic. A must see for pilgrim and foreign visitors. Architecture from 10C. Take a horse buggy ride.

Basically the only reason to visit Bagan is to see all the temples. There are too many to review individually but overall it is a great experience. A balloon may be the best way to see them but at over $400 it's a bit pricey....More

This is a very special place with a rich history of culture and spirituality. It's still not a busy place where one can enjoy the heritage in peace; looking out from the tower of a pagoda, enjoying the beautiful sunrise or sunset. With an e-bike...More

Even if you’ve seen a bunch of Buddhist temples in other countries, with over 3800 temples found today, Bagan is really a unique experience. I went there off season so enjoyed passing through the quiet sandy roads to visit the key temples with minimal tourists...More

I recommend that you do not travel by train. It is not comfortable and can take 20 hours. We came back from Bagan to Yangon by air conditioned bus an it took 10 hours. If I had to do it again I would fly.
