Bagan, Sea of Temples and Pagodas in Myanmar

Located on the eastern bank of Ayeyarwaddy River, in the dry central plains of the country, Bagan is an ancient city which was the capital of First Burmese Empire. Bagan houses 11th-century to 13th-century temples and buildings. More than thousands of temples and pagodas found in Bagan were built by the ancient Kings and Burma Leaders.

Among all of cities in Myanmar, Bagan is an ideal attraction for the travellers. As Bagan does not experience the rainy season like other cities in the lower part of Myanmar, it allows the tourists to explore the ancient city with ease all year round.

 

Travelling around Bagan, tourists will find many temples and pagodas including Ananda Temple, Bu Pagoda and Dhammayangyi Temple and historical musuem. Tourists can take the hot air balloon trip to spot all over the ancient city from the sky, grab the bicycle cycling around the city, hike the Popa mountain or go on the river cruise to witness the beauty of Ayeyarwaddy and Chindwin Rivers.

Apart from exploring the city, tourists also could relax themselves by playing golf and enjoy the taste of Myanmar food at the restaurants around the city.

Even Bagan is an old city, but it offers the fresh moments to every tourist.
