Bagan

with the background of east mountains ranges

Bagan is one of the world’s most splendid archeological sites. The pagodas recall an age of former greatness. Visiting selected major monuments which possess unique architecture, colorful murals and the finest stucco would save visitors from the possible temple-and-pagoda-sickness. Among the many important one, Anada temple, Manuha and Nanpaya temples, Sulamani temple are very interesting.

Apart from the temples in Bagan, there are several tiny villages like Thiripyitsaya, Myinkaba, Wetkyiin, and Pwasaw. Strolling around, bicycling through or riding a horse- cart round one of the villages will be a great experience. However, morning before 10 AM and afternoon after 4 PM are good time to avoid the desert-like temperature of the mid day sun.
