Stretching over 41,000sq km with 4,000 thousand relics, Bagan is an irresistible attraction. Every temple or stupa is a unique piece of art and belongs to a different time, so the masters had made them diverse with their own creativeness of mural paintings, stucco, stone inscriptions or plaques. We can get lost in a temple just by chasing its twilight beauty, when the outside light illuminates its windows, murals and mysterious statues with amazing stories. At sunrises and sunsets, visitors can’t help coming to the Old Bagan to contemplate the sun hang over a horizon, prolonging above thousands different-shaped stupas, temples, emerged from the red dusty ground or river. Many tourists do not hesitate to try expensive balloon rides in the morning to contemplate the best-ever sunrise in the world, before landing to visit the relics. You can also save time to go further to Salay incomparable wooden monastery, garden, and Mountain Popa near Bagan, lingering your stay at the town for relaxation. For other tourists, visiting to Bagan will not be fulfilled without joining a biking trip or traditional horse cart ride, when you swing on the back of horses to wander along small paths zigzagging between relics, stopping at any place that captivate your eyes, taking off your shoes before entering. And the whole progress will give you an unforgettable feeling as well as admiration to the masters’ works.
