Riding an electric scooter through the temple area of Bagan has really been one of the most amazing experiences! Make sure to climb on top of one of the temples to see the sunset, just breathtaking!

You should go early morning for sun rise , day time to visit and sunset for fabulous pictures . Take a guide as with so many temples, Stupas and monastery you don’t know where to go alone .... And you help local people.

This area carries a deep magic. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to see these incredible temples. They have a far bigger story to tell than you could ever imagine.

It makes a fantastic day out to rent a bike and visit the many pagodas scattered across the ancient town. Each pagoda is charming in its own way.

The ancient temples and pagodas of Bagan are really a wonder of the world! It is amazing how many of them there are so it isn’t difficult to find quiet spots for meditation and prayer. Transportation via e-bike is definitely the way to go. Government...More

Having recently been to the Angkor region of Cambodia, I daresay the Bagan Temples are no less spectacular - but of course they are admired for different reasons. While Angkor temples are more ancient on average and arguably greater architectural masterpieces, it's the sheer number...More

Took the overnight bus ride from Yangon. Well worth it, fabulous. Motorbike riding through the temples was a highlight. Have been to Agor Wat and this stacks up. No crowds and some areas are deserted. I would highly recommend

Bagan was the ancient capital of Burma (Myanmar) with thousands of pagodas and temples which were built over the years mainly by kings, nobility and rich people. Many of these have been destroyed and become ruins over the centuries. It is still an amazing sight...More

Because of Philippines passport holder, you have 14 days visa free to visit Myanmar. September is also good time to visit Bagan neither too hot nor cold. And also you can get cheap price for hotel rooms.
