Myanmar (Burma) - Bagan & Central Myanmar (Chapter)
This is the Bagan & Central Myanmar chapter from Lonely Planet’s Myanmar (Burma) guidebook.
The heartland of the Bamar people has been the location of three former Burmese capitals – Bagan, Pyay and Taungoo – as well as the latest surreal one, Nay Pyi Taw. Of this quartet, it’s Bagan with its wondrous vista of pagodas and stupas that’s the star attraction.
- watch from a hot-air balloon as the sun rises or sets over the temple-studded plain of Bagan
- hit the Ayeyarwady River on a Bagan–Mandalay boat, or on a half-day trip to nearby temples
- pay respects to Myanmar’s 37 nat at their spiritual home, the monkey-tastic volcanic mountaintop temple at Mt Popa
- restaurants & accommodation
