At first we didn't realise how special this place is. But once we really got to see the temples from an elevated view, just wow. Especially in low season. The best part is that every visitor must drive an e- scooter which makes for a very peaceful environment.

We hired an ‘e bike’ - a battery operated scooter & made our own way around the many wonderful pagodas, temples & stupas. We started early & after siesta, to avoid the heat of the day. The major temples are majestic & like cathedrals. The smaller & numerous wats are eerie by their sheer numbers but enthralling in their arid, bushland setting. Due to new regulations you can no longer climb the temples for sunset views - tho there are locals who will offer that. We declined. There are now man made mounds from which to watch sunrise & sunset - which get busy & crowded, even in low season. Bagan, a magic experience.

À trip to Myanmar would not be complete without a visit to Bagan.
With over 2000 temples and Pagodas, you can eat your heart out!
We did 2 full days, by e-bikes, with Sunrise and sunsets, and a balloon ride.
We were all templed-out by the end, but you could spend an entire week there and not see them all!

This is the most ámazing thing I’ve ever seen in my life. The balloons over temples in sunrise and sunset were absolutely magical and it was like in a fairytale, especially when we had waited for 3 days rainy in Bagan. Better get here from Dec - Mar to avoid rains and see the best of Bagan with the baloons

We rented an e-bike for cheap and did our own tours. Take off and explore. To beat the heat go at 5:30 AM. Young boys will drive next to you and offer to show you secret temples. It is worth giving them a few bucks. We were taken to a spot for sunrise that was an amazing sea of mist with temples rising out everywhere. Then he showed us the sunset temple and we returned on our own that night.
