Bagan Travel Tips

Achieve your travel goals in Bagan. Maximize your itinerary, budget & enjoy the most out of your trip to Bagan with Detourista.

If there’s one place in Myanmar that you should take the time to visit, it’s definitely Bagan.

The sheer scale of this ancient city is comparable to the leagues of Angkor Wat.

The latter may have more massive single structures but Bagan one-ups it with a landscape filled with thousands of pagodas and temples that are extremely scenic at sunrise and sunsets.
