LOVED IT!

I loved Bagan so much that I've decided to stay around 4 days just roaming around with the e-bike, exploring the surroundings and the pagodas/Temples.

Definitely get up to see sunrise and sunset. We were out exploring from 5-9/10 and the would relax until 5PM and the go out again from 5-7/8. So much fun to just go and find a cool pagoda to explore. Google for good spots to watch sunrise and sunset. Make sure to leave extra time for travel as it's really... More

Important to be aware of the dress codes. Glad to hear that the Govt has finnaly allowed UNESCO to take over the restoration of the temples. Some of them are amazing. A very good reason to go to Bagan.

Rent an e-bike, find out which temples are the best and go! The best is to explore it your on way. It is super easy to find, especially with the app Maps.Me. You have to pay 25.000 Kyat somewhere for entrance to the area, but I don't know where. Nobody was there to check our ticket or to sell the... More

Definitely rent an e-bike for touring the temples it allows you to fit more in and go off the beaten path. Ours ran out of battery twice but the locals... More

This area is amazing. We were able to see the earthquake damage and how it was being repaired--you are not allowed in areas under repair. We were amazed to see so many temples in the same area---the heart of Myanmar for us. Don't miss it!

Mysterious and hidden stupas and temples spread across the landscape. Some in bad condition due to earthquake.. Can't really imagine how amazing it used to be back in time. A must visit if you are in Myanmar but not in hot season as walking bare footed in the temples will burn your foot. This is the only issue as taking... More

Bagan was most amazing and attractive places among the Myanmar.If you are photographer ,I'm sure your jaw will drop when you watch Sunrise and Sunset at the top of pagodas.Don't forget to bring face mask and other skin protection care because Bagan was too dusty and Sunny .
