How to visit Bagan Temples and Pagodas in Myanmar?
If you find yourself living and working in Myanmar or are simply on a short visit, you will not want to miss the ancient city of Bagan. From the 9th to the 13th century, this huge city was the capital of the Pagan Kingdom which ruled over much of modern day Myanmar. Today you will find over two thousand temples, pagodas and other buildings spread over a huge area on a scale that will take your breath away. The Bagan area is generally considered to be the equal of the much more widely known and heavily touristic site of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, however, a ticket to visit only costs US $10. The best advice is to get here as soon as possible so you can enjoy this magical site before it is discovered by the masses.
