World heritage site · Ruins · Sacred & Religious Sites
The thousands of temples at Bagan rise up from the plain, each with their own history, style, and spiritual meaning. The ancient temple city once stood as the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, flourishing between the ninth and 13th centuries CE. Divided into stupas (solid pagodas), and hollow temples, 10,000 religious structures stood here at the height of the kingdom's power, with around 2,200 remaining today. Visitors can take tours of Bagan in a variety of ways, including renting a bicycle or electric bike, a private taxi, a horse and cart, or even an air balloon. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Bagan and add them to your vacation plans using our Myanmar online travel planner.

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.
