This is a wonderful place to visit. The history is astounding, you need to be a little bit agile as there is a lot of walking and more than a little, uphill, stony, walking too. A lot of this in bare feet! But oh so worth it.

Get a guide, it's impossible to appreciate the history otherwise, unless it is your speciality. We didn't do the balloon ride as we visited in May and they do not run them then. May is a little hot, but so quiet and no crowds, no waiting, no queueing. It may be out of the high season but you get to appreciate the temples and stupa in peace.

This place is a must see. Take your shoes off, climb a stupor and watch the hot air ballons rise with the sun. Booking a car through your hotel is easiest. A whole day takes it out of you so, i'd recommend going for sunrise one day and sunset the other. Its rather nice after a long day to go to the watch tower and see the sun go down.

We just came to baggan so see piece of history. The great thing is, that the temples are for free.. you dont need to pay for them except of those where they bring buses with tourist... we realy dont recommend doing those.. simply not worthy. Download maps.me to orient in area and see great info about temples in Area :) We had amazing time hanging around on the top of temples (Y)

Bagan is in a quite primitive state but possesses an unforgettable human heritage! In the city most streets are dirt tracks very dimly lit. You inhale a lot of dust anywhere you go but I would go again because for every site visited there's at least two or three unseen.
