    Your Experience

    It’s time for your Bagan Tour & Sightseeing. In the morning, after the breakfast and your hotel  we will be picked up by our guide and begin your tour of Bagan.

    Bagan is one of Asia’s most celebrated archaeological sites, boasting over 2000 unique pagodas, temples and monuments and is, without doubt, a highlight if many people’s Myanmar tour. We start our day with a visit to Bagan’s thriving morning markets for a fascinating insight into daily life in Myanmar. From there, we proceed to our first monument of the day, the magnificent 900-year-old Shwe Zi Gon stupa. Having explored this marvellous gold-clad monument, we make the short journey to the famous Htilominlo temple. Constructed entirely of red brick and standing at over 150 feet tall, the Htilominlo temple is one of the most recognisable landmarks on the Bagan horizon, and is home to a number of spectacular plaster mouldings. From here, our next stop of the Bagan tour is the Shwesandaw Pagoda, consisting of five layered terraces and crowned with an intricately decorated stupa.

    After a break for lunch, we visit a local workshop to experience first-hand some of Bagan’s famous lacquerware being produced by hand. Returning to the archaeological zone, we next visit the stunning Manuhar temple. One of the oldest temples in Bagan, main attraction of the Manuhar temple is the numerous enormous Buddhas to be found inside, including a unique reclining Buddha. The final stop of our Bagan day tour is at the Hindu temple of Nan Phaya where we can experience intricate carvings depicting the Hindu god Brahma, before experiencing a phenomenal sunset over Bagan from the pagoda.

    After the sunset the Bagan Tour come to and end and we will be transferred to your hotel in Bagan to enjoy the rest of the evening.
