Bagan, capital of the First Myanmar Empire, is known as the city of four million pagodas. It is one of the richest archaeological sites in Asia and the main tourist destination in Myanmar. The ruins of Bagan City cover an area of 42 sq. km containing over 2000 edifices. The majority of these well-preserved temples and pagodas offer a rich architectural heritage from the 11th to 13th century era.
This enchanting city is situated on the eastern bank of the Ayeyarwaddy River, about 193 km south of Mandalay.
To me, Bagan, though less known, promoted and visited than Angor in Cambodia, surpasses it in terms of beauty and tranquility.
The opportunities of extraordinary panoramic views over the plain full pagodas at sunset is an experience of a lifetime.
- Pros:history, extraordinary temples, tranquility, less touristy
- Cons:souvenir vendors struggling to earn a dollar
