Bagan Archaeological Site, Myanmar


Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) was off-limits for tourists for a number of years due to the political situation, but now that Aung San Suu Kyi has been freed there is a renewed interest in tourism to the country.

One of the most fascinating places to walk is Bagan, best known for over 3,000 religious monuments. It is one of the most remarkable architectural sites in the world. A walk through the area is unique, taking you past Buddhist pagodas, stupas and temples by the Irrawaddy River.

Walking around, the site can be a hot and dusty but the history and beauty of the area draws visitors in further and it can take days to explore the site fully. Sights range from the distinctive Thatbyinnyu and Ananda Temples to quaint and decaying pagodas.
