Bagan – Exploring the Temples of a Lost World
Land in Bagan and immediately feel how different Myanmar is to the rest of the world. Sublime sandstone monuments rise amidst the trees; their extravagance stretches for miles across the dusty plains. Golden stupas reflect in the Irrawaddy River; 900-year-old murals hide beside giant Buddha images, and the landscape is quick to overwhelm your senses. There are over 2,000 temples and pagodas, relics from one of the world's biggest building booms. Myanmar's iconic destination, Bagan presents a mythical world where every angle baffles the eye. Be greeted at the airport and transferred to your hotel in Old Bagan in easy walking distance of the area’s largest temples.
Explore all afternoon and wind your way along the sandy trails to a series of the most inspiring temples. Some offer adventure as you climb narrow staircases to phenomenal views over the plains. Others imbue serenity, where meditative chants and incense spill from the archways. Young monks gather in one as sand artists paint in another while shining gold Buddhas shimmer in many. No two are the same, and your guide will unravel the narratives on their history to take you on an architectural journey through the monarchs of Myanmar's past.
