This is a great place to visit, more than 2000 temples. You hire a local guide and an E bike. The temples are for free. This is one of the highlights of our trip.

If there’s one thing Myanmar’s known for, it’s gotta be Bagan in Mandalay Region (others include Inle Lake, Yangon, Mandalay) Why? There are thousands of Buddhist temples dotted across the vast green plains of central Myanmar. Locals used to say that “you can point at...More

Dhammayangyi Temple is a Buddhist temple located in Bagan, Myanmar. Largest of all the temples in Bagan. The Dhammayangyi is the widest temple in Bagan, and is built in a plan similar to that of Ananda Temple.

After spending two days in Old Bagan we fell in love with the temples. Compared to ones along the river, these have not been 'done up' with all the gold etc. and are fascinating. The Old Bagan area is itself wonderful.

We spent two magical days here and it completely blew us away. I had a sense it would be special but to be so completely surrounded by stupas and temples of every size was somewhat mind-blowing. I rate Bagan alongside the Angkor Wat area and...More

Spread out across the Bagan plains these 2200+ temples and pagodas range in size from small to huge. Some are just by the main roads and some are well off the beaten path. Do yourself a favour and don’t get a guide or go in...More

From the Philippines you have to fly to Yangon first than to Nyaung U Airport which is 10km from Old Bagan.
