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.
