I just returned from three days in the Bagan region and I can't say enough about the experience. There is no point in going to Burma if you don't come here.
Any one of the 4000+ temples would be a top tourist destination in my home country of canada. It was removed from the UNESCO world heritage site list in the 1980's after they weren't happy with the restoration work the military junta conducted after the devastating 1975 earthquake.
Though absolutely awe inspiring, it was also a bit depressing to see the garbage everywhere and general lack of care the area receives.
The balloon ride is 100% worth it!!
