If yes, then we would say, you should read this write-up for having a journey to Bagan, a little different from the typical ones. We are sure you would not be tired of clicking snaps of the picture-perfect locations. Have a tour…

A journey to Bagan on a bike:

If you think Bagan is small, then you are mistaken. It is challenging to explore Bagan on foot, and a lot of tourists travel in a van or a horse cart. However, if you do not wish to move around the city on somebody else’s way, then it is better that you rent a bike to roam around.

Bagan is famous for temples and uphill areas that can easily be covered by riding a bike. Bagan is an archaeological zone, and hence you would be required to pay a small amount as an entry fee to the places with the bike. Over the flat terrains, you can go for one-hour biking and explore the unknowns. Since you would have your own bikes, you get the chance to stop around places that excite you or can take shelter at the local’s place. You can also ask the locals around about their culture & tradition and mingle around. If you find an opportunity, ask the locals to prepare some of their famous food delicacies. The local guides Odynovo are largely renowned in the region, and they will guide you through some exciting pathways in the city.

The scintillating sunset from the pagodas:

Bagan is famous for the mind-blowing experiences of the sunset and sunrise from the top of pagodas. Bagan is a treasure-trove of old temples and pagodas that you should not miss in including it in the Laos tour package. If you are a nature lover and wish to have a magical time sitting and enjoying, then trust us, you will get one of the best sunsets with the stupas-filled backdrop. We understand that you might get bored visiting temples in Bagan, but this scene of pagoda will leave you speechless. The raw beauty of the pagodas and the natural sunset looks like a perfect match for each other. On your visit, a lot of locals will tell you about the Shwesandaw temple, which is also again a must-not-miss place in the city. However, it often gets too crowded, and it is not suitable for elders and kids.

Another landscape view that will amaze you is the sunset view at the top of Taung Guni Temple. You will be able to see the silhouettes of the temples if you climb at the highest peak. Every angle at the pagodas will give you a completely gorgeous view of the sunsets.

Not-to miss, the hot air balloon ride:

If you do not fear heights, then hot air balloon sunset ride is another one on the top list of things to do in Bagan. The price of a hot air balloon trip for the Myanmar tour packages start from around 260 USD to 330 USD per person. During this amazing flight, you will observe some magnificent views of the mountains and temples once you look down.

Having said that, people really are crazy behind this tour, and you need to be an early bird to book your tickets. Otherwise, you may not find a room for yourself and may have to miss upon this exclusive ride. You would find regular balloon flights between mid-October to mid-March, but the final take off completely depends upon the weather. Unfavorable or unpleasant weather may not allow you to ride off. Don’t worry, they do refund the booking amount.

Enjoy with the locals:

Temples visits, monument visits are but obvious places to travel, but wait, did anyone tell you that enjoying and staying with the locals in their way would add on to the experience? Encounter the monks at the temples, travel with them, and have a better insight of how gracefully the locals enjoy their daily life. You will also observe how beautifully women wear traditional attire longyi and thanaka.

Betal nut is their national pastime, and you will find chewing the nuts all the time when you travel in the country.

We hope this blog encourages you to book your Myanmar holiday packages right away. You can get in touch with a tour operator for a better and tailor-made trip.
