Temples in Bagan are not to be missed ! There are so many of them ! Best way to visit is to hire an electric motorbike to go around at your own pace. Early morning is the best to avoid the heat.

I have travelled the world exploring ancient ruins and have to say Bagan is one of my favourites. Unlike the temples of Cambodia there usually is much room to walk around inside. Both are similar as you are free to explore, but Bagan is a...More

It had a similar feel than Angkor, although these temples can be in all sizes dotted around everywhere. Some had been restored to make them look almost new... that was not good. The older genuine ones are a gem. You get to go very close...More
