Hire yourself an ebike. They are so cheap. Grab your camera and a couple of bottles of water and get out there. You should hire a guide for your first day to do the big temples. This way you get to know the history and...More

We travelled to the site by horse and cart. Such a beautiful part of the country and the temples were just wonderful. It’s not crowded so you can stroll around taking in the spectacular scenery. Definitely visit

The sheer volume and variety of temples is impressive, and unlike any place I’ve ever been. But the big temples are swarming with some of the most aggressive merchants I’ve ever fought off, and the little temples for the most part are very poorly taken...More

I have been there 7 years ago and you feel that there is not a dedicated protection like World Heritage to keep it in an original way. Myanmar tries to do restoration but it is a mismatch. Also, new buildings come up between the temples...More

Highly recommend to go for a guided tour, where the guide will show you to the places of interest / temples, as well as the story telling of its history. Very meaningful and informative. Otherwise, hire an Ebike and explore the site on your own!...More

This is a wonderful place to visit. The history is astounding, you need to be a little bit agile as there is a lot of walking and more than a little, uphill, stony, walking too. A lot of this in bare feet! But oh so...More

This place is a must see. Take your shoes off, climb a stupor and watch the hot air ballons rise with the sun. Booking a car through your hotel is easiest. A whole day takes it out of you so, i'd recommend going for sunrise...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.
