Temples of Bagan, Old Bagan, Myanmar


What can you expect:

Bagan is an ancient city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Mandalay Region of Myanmar. From the 9th to 13th centuries, the city was the capital of the Pagan Kingdom, the first kingdom that unified the regions that would later constitute Myanmar.
In Old Bagan you have beautiful religious buildings, Bagan’s thousands of temples testify to the religious devotion of its inhabitants. It is one of the richest archaeological sites in all of Asia. The view from this spot alone is phenomenal.
Restoration work continues, and new laws have been passed to help preserve the site, as well as manage the impact of increasing visitors to the popular tourist destination.

Go on a horse and cart guided tour. This is many people’s favourite, and certainly the most romantic way to see the temples. However, horses have to follow more well-trodden tracks than bicycles, so there are areas they cannot reach. Prices range from K15,000 to K25,000 for a day. Carts can be shared between two or, at most, three people.
