    Interesting small village. The tour doesn't take very long. And of course they want to sell you the stuff they make in the village, too. They don't pressure you though. I think it's a nice way of getting foreigners money and it's a good thing to support the locals.

    A village houses 125 families and they are equipped with mainly the making of sand artworks, scarf weaving, minnanthu village cigar. End of tour, the villagers will ask you for monetary gratitude which said to be their customary traditions for each foreigners leaving the village. No obligations in buying and they are absolutely friendly. Tourist trap or not will depends on how you see it.

    This is a local village being entrepreneurial and showing visitors around. It's a nice break from the temples and a good way to see traditional village life. It's always good to support the locals.

    The place prides itself as a real village you can visit close to Bagan. Here you can shop for lacquerware. There are a few traditional restaurants here, and apparently a Doctor as well. Otherwise, if you have time then come, if not you're not missing out on anything.

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.
