  • Admission as Japan Yen 600 Yen paid, went to the Observatory. This is the superb view. It is just great! Bagan view from the Observatory Centre in the pagoda can climb is still higher than it was exceptional. Worth a visit take a look at.

Partly cloudy in the evening sky, so up and the famous sunset though the pagoda still lies in the Green appearance in feel is. Italy food restaurant? Myanmar beer is beer as beer, cheers for the first wines were. A night too dark around, it is also about looks distant pagodas are lit up

  • Bagan! Beautiful landscape and offers 360-degree panorama. We are using the hotel's restaurant. The taste is okay. Price Tokyo level (about USD30) is a credit card does not work, so care is required.

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.
