I had seen pictures of the area before but the impact is just not the same. It seems that everywhere you look there is a temple rearing up from the brush. It is simply magnificent.

I recommend that you do not travel by train. It is not comfortable and can take 20 hours. We came back from Bagan to Yangon by air conditioned bus an it took 10 hours. If I had to do it again I would fly.
