  • The Bulethi Pagoda has great views, you can get impressive pics during sunset and sunrise and it is easy to reach and to climb. 
  • The Bulethi is one of the best place for watching sunrise in Bagan. The hot air balloons are passing through the sun and words itself couldn't describe it and I really wanna recommend to experience it...  more »
  • I don't know why, but this was my absolute favorite Temple. During the day I sat here time definitely an hour and enjoyed the peace and quiet and the views, also for the sunset, he is great and not so crowded! My highlight!

  • We went here first thing in the morning after getting the overnight bus. We saw the sunrise and got great photos of the hot air balloons flying past. It can get busy at both sunrise and sunset but it is a great view point.
  • The best place to watch the balloons at dawn, they fly right past!
  • Beautiful panoramic view and a scary but very rewarding climb ! If you come here during non-peak season you'd practically be by yourself, which is precisely what made this temple so great.
  • perfect choice for sunrise. not crowded, with a splendid view in 360 degrees
  • Popular sunset viewing spot but gets very crowded as all tour groups come here.
