Join me in Bagan for an amazing experience surrounded by temples.
Myanmar is an easy trip for people located in Southeast Asia; many major cities have a flight to Mandalay or Yangon and those that don’t will have an easy connection in Bangkok. Bagan is a bit more of a commitment. You’ll need to take a domestic flight, overnight bus or train, or river ferry. If you have time, do the ferry from Mandalay. It takes most of the day, but you’ll see so much of the countryside.
Once in Bagan, you’ll want to make a plan to see the temples. That is the main attraction in the city. You can do a tour or rent an electric bike and head out on your own. Whichever option you choose, be sure that you see a sunrise or sunset over the temples. Sunrise hot air balloon rides are a popular, if expensive, option.
