Bagan is to Myanmar, what Angkor Wat is to Cambodia, in terms of both culture and tourism.

This ancient, sacred zone stretches across over 100 square km of bush and grassy plains, with over 2200 towering temples, pagodas and monasteries sprinkled across this vast expanse.

Crafted mainly from reddish-pink bricks, the complex is what remains of the powerful ‘Pagan’ culture, which was at its peak during the 11th to 13th centuries.

It is an architectural and archaeological wonder and an awe-inspiring spectacle to behold, particularly on misty mornings bathed in sunrise light.
