  • Simply the best sunsets (breathtaking) of Bagan. Among the recommended places for watching sunsets over the plains of Bagan, personally the terraces of Bulethi Paya are the nicest ever. Far from far larger and crowded pagodas, the Bulethi allows you to enjoy breathtaking views in total (also depends on the season of visiting) silence, with only the sounds of nature. BEST SUNSETS OF BAGAN!!!

  • Great for sunset but you need to arrive early to get a good spot on top of the temple as it gets crowded fast. ledges on the temple are somewhat narrow so just take extra precaution when climbing up. ...  more »
  • If you're a foreigner, make sure you pay the $20 ticket in Bagan and make sure to keep that ticket with you all the time. There are roving officers who check them whenever you enter some known temple ...  more »

  • Perfect place for sunset and sunrise but be aware that you will not have the idea to come to this temple at that time exclusively. Its very crowded which makes it not very romantic. However, make sure to be there at an early time and you will have a good position to enjoy the view
  • One of the best place to see sunrise and set. If you want to go there u need to go early.if u late no place for you.
  • Amazing views!! The only reason I wouldn’t give 5 stars is the crowd at sunset, which takes away from the overall experience.
  • Nice views, but as of December 2017 it is not allowed to climb it for sunrise views.
  • This is one of the best place to see sunset. Got to be careful with steps when going up.

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.
