  • At the entrance I had already a light bulb should go burn because you have to pay separate entrance here, while anyone who enters this area already have a hefty entrance fee (for local standards) have to pay. They would have to make at the entrance all duifelijk that it is not authentic-now I felt cheated me just like the Palace in Yangon is called a reconstruction, but I fear that it is fantasy at all, at least that I read. Anyway, with 2200 temples you can miss this wrl.

  • The palace is situated in the heart of Old Bagan. Its size isn’t very big, but the gold everywhere is really impressive. All areas can be viewed and there are explanations in English. The garden in fr...  more »
  • 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!

  • nice weather, nice view, nice building. a great structure and details for every structure in this palace. but they said its not the real palace, just imitation.
  • Nice Guide Recorded Voice For About Palace Rooms.
  • I love it especially the view.
  • This palace is built based on the design of acient Bagan palace. We can gain knowledge of some facts of Bagan palace deaign from it.
  • Nothing to see, terrible English translations, and overpriced. A complete tourist trap

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.
