  • Spectacular golden pagoda, with devout atmosphere. Many picturesque people washing the Buddhas in a source. Worth seeing. Also the important amount of money deposited in the ballot box. It must be very special for the believers.

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.
