  • It has been a very strange experience back to a way of life that we don't already have. Despite being a little prepared face to tourists, eat the 86 year old woman smoking, continues to be his home and is where and how live. Very curious mill of peanuts for oil

  • We were so glad that our guide took us to this village. It was the crowning jewel to our visit to Bagan. We enjoyed tea and snacks at the home of a family that does lacquer and then visited the ladies...  more »
  • Made by individuals, especially tea couldn't because the chip is not requested. Can I buy a textile weaving in front of grandmas. Karen and Inle Lake, what you are selling elsewhere may have been cheaper than shop Temple. Raffia making cigarettes suck myself in what I am, and the got two staff especially will not be charged anything. I'm shopping? It was peanuts. 触re合ete grandmothers and small children and enjoyed it.

  • Nice little village where a super nice local shows you around, how they live, and their crafts (spinning cotton, weaving, lacquer shop, making peanut oil, and more). You can buy something or give a donation. We stopped at one of the little restaurants as well. A great stop between temple visits.
  • Nice break from Temple hopping. Although it might seem a bit staged, I did enjoy seeing village life. Being told that the village only had electricity connected in 2016 was an eye opener. Although we had our own tour guide, the tour was carried out by the youth of the village.
  • A walk through the village to discover agriculture and the way of life. Meet with locals and share about their lifestyle. Just a fabulous moment !
  • Interesting but seems staged. The village was too neat and too clean, so much so that it seems a little staged – if you want to see "real" villages, I'd suggest taking the circular train in Yangon, or exploring some of the villages on a bike in the Inle Lake region instead. Our guide was quite nice, but we gave her 5000 kyats as a tip and she asked for more. Obviously didn't give any more.
  • Informative tour on how the locals live. If you need something to do and have extra time, might as well give it a shot.

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.
