Bagan Travel Guide

Bagan is an ancient city in Myanmar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is famous for its historical heritage, featuring around 2000 monuments and other structures spanning different periods.

The top attractions in the city are the sweeping sights of Ananda Pahto, Thatbyinnyu Pahto, Sulamani Pahto, Gawdawpalin Pahto, Dhammayangyi Pahto, Shwezigon Paya, and Shwesandaw Paya Pagoda. After exploring its historical sites, you might also enjoy shopping for local handicrafts, riding a hot air balloon, and hopping on a boat trip. You may also take a short cooking class near the central market, so you can taste their local dishes and learn to make them, too.

Bagan Nyaung U Airport is your gateway to the city and its surrounding areas. For tourists coming overseas, the easiest route is to take a flight to Yangon International Airport and travel a little over an hour to Bagan.
