    Bagan is a town with numerous temples and attractions. After a while you even not distinguish very well a temple on the other, because all are very beautiful, but very similar. The number (and tends to increase) of tourists in the attractions also irritates some. Visit the Golden Palace was a relief: the attraction is ignored by most other tourists, I think because of the ticket to the part that you need to buy (cheap, especially for Brazilians, accustomed to pay for every thing). I could visit the Palace all alone, and it was wonderful to have the place all to myself. The building is fully restored to reflect how it was a Palace of truth at the time of the monarchy. Although not old like the rest of the temples in the archaeological area, the visit was very instructive and interesting. Super recommend!

    Don't get me wrong, the Golden Palace is impressive. You will need to pay 5000 Kyat entry for this place, as this attraction isn't included in your 25000 Kyat entrance fee payment. For me personally, ...  more »

    Reconstruction of the Royal Palace 11 century, certainly does not represent the historical value, but gives a good idea of what looked like Palace 1100 years ago. We were wondering. Now here is a restaurant and a place to japrovedenija sumptuous events.

    Nothing to see, terrible English translations, and overpriced. A complete tourist trap

    Beautiful palace to walk around, under renovation.

    Nice reconstruction with recordings at each of the palace wings to explain some of the functions of each room. 5000ks entrance fee for foreginers.

    5000ks, not included in the 25000ks area pass. Go find another sucker. We should charge every person from Myanmar that visits 100$ to walk across the Brooklyn bridge...

    Lovely Palace. Each section of the Palace has a recording explaining some history of the Palace

Where to stay in Bagan

Bagan accommodations try their best to fit in with the atmosphere of spirituality and mystery that clings to the temple town. As such, you won't find any high-rise hotels here. Instead, a number of squat wooden lodges, converted traditional houses, and new boutique resorts (all pretty low to the ground) provide the main options for those staying in town. Among them, you'll find some that offer a slightly better range of facilities--including well-maintained pools and restaurants--and others that offer basic dormitory accommodation.
