Bagan Viewing Tower offers panoramic vistas of Bagan archeological site, with more than 2,000 medieval monuments to admire. Open to the public since 2005, the 60 m (197 ft) high tower--or “the high palace” in Burmese--boasts 13 floors with lobbies, offices, a souvenir shop, an expensive cafe, and viewing platforms on the top three levels. The scenic landscape features a vast plane crossed by dirt roads and divided by a blue river, shrouded in lush trees and dotted with numerous pagodas. A luxurious resort sits at the bottom of the tower. Make Bagan Viewing Tower a centerpiece of your Bagan vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bagan holiday planner.

  • Although commemorates the watchtower of the Royal Palace of Mandalay, also rebuilt, this is an abomination in relation to context. The top floor is the vistapoint from which you can enjoy sometimes a great sunset. The penultimate, as usual, you will find the usual restaurant monstre and all part of contiguous management Aureum Resort of Bagan (vistapoint's account can be paid on the bill of the Resort). I think that the Tower has prevented in Bagan to be listed among the Unesco sites under management as, for much else, widely deserved.

  • Bird's-eye view of Bagan tesa's famous political merchant which was built, because of the backlash, guidebook is not too appreciated is the view from the tower is great. Admission charge is taken, but when the meal is free. The views with a drink for people who like beer, is unclear. Was the memory of the last 10/96: Curry was a $ 6, but this time 3/97 was $ 8. To the Myanmar is good food. Really not want to introduce to people so want to place hidden four-point evaluation.
