The Cultural Zone
Bagan is an ancient city in the Mandalay region that is home to over 2,000 ancient temples and pagodas. You can spend a half day biking around the temples and pagodas of Old Bagan and finish the day watching the sunset atop the “Sunset Pagoda”. You can also take a day trip to Mt. Popa, a famed inactive volcano with wild monkeys, and climb 777 steps to see a panoramic view of Bagan and the surrounding villages. You can also watch and learn how Lacquerware is made. If you travel with us between September and March, you can have the pleasure of seeing the sunrise from a hot air balloon.
