Simply one of the great sites on earth. I would hope Unesco would help preserve it but is it not designated and I am concerned it will be "restored" with pour craftsmanship, as is the case in several areas of Myanmar. Temples, pagodas, temples, pagodas, everywhere you look !

“Wow,Wow,Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Truly stunning! Everywhere we visited had the wow factor. This is a magical place. We could not believe the history we were walking through. I just hope that the tourism does not spoil this very special place.

“A wonderful site & such quantity of temples amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

What a wonderful place, amazing to see so many temples dotted about. Wild have loved to have had our own motorcycle but tourists aren't allowed hire them in Bagan. So we had to cycle which is slow & hot! Next day we got a minivan so we covered more ground. Unfortunately all the temples are pretty much the same so after you have seen a few! Amazing sunsets

Loved it! Bagan and its Pagodas are wonderful. Great for Sunrise... So much History and such nice people. We liked Bagan the most in Myanmar.

“Do not miss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Absolutely fantastic temples set over a big area. Try cycling around or horse and cart. Climb up and see the site from a high vantage point. The atmosphere is wonderful. People gather at sunset at the highest temples. But it is much quieter early morning.
