And Day 2 of Bagan itinerary.
Bagan – It is an ancient city in central Myanmar (formerly Burma), southwest of Mandalay
Currency – Kyat
Language – Burmese, hardly anyone spoke English except the hotel staffs
Hello – Mingalabar
Thanks- Kyay Zuu Tin Par Tal
I recommend discovering Bagan by hiring a bicycle, e-bike or a scooter from your hotel, hostel or shops around town. 8000 kyats for 2 days is a bargain! If you fancy, private car hiring is also available.

I booked the Kumudara hotel in Bagan via Airbnb. Decent wooden decor but beautiful window view. I am not sponsored by them but I genuinely liked the area and the hotel. However, food wasn’t that great but there is a number of restaurants nearby. The best thing about this hotel was – you could see temples from the balcony, pool and even from the dining area! And the cherry on top was they maintain one of the nearby temple and guests can come and go for sunrise and sunsets without a crowd! How good is that!

Exciting 3 full days Bagan itinerary (with photos) – Day 3
1. Watch peaceful Bagan Sunrise
One of the major reasons people come to visit Bagan is for sunrise and sunset among the 2000+ temples. It is a special sight but Bagan is flat all around. So, the idea is to find somewhere high which means to climb the top of the temples. The problem is temples are getting shut these days and it is trickier to find the ones that are officially allowed to climb. But I found a couple of temples you can go for that perfect sunrise and sunsets. Read it here.
In the midst of all the Bagan exploring, it is always worth the time to spend a few hours discovering the residential neighborhoods, as this gives you a unique window into what it’s like to actually live there. Mornings stroll are best for that because there is a fresh new day vibe, and when you get to see the local life as they start their day. Whether it be checking out what they eat for their breakfast, many photography opportunities or just watching a farmer with his cows on the backdrop of beautiful Bagan temples.
2. Explore 2000+ temples in Bagan
Sometimes we need some time to take it all in to explore more afterward. Enjoy what your accommodation offers, read a book, meditate, Yoga by the temple or just chill. If it’s getting too humid for you and your hotel or hostel doesn’t offer pool view, check out the only hostel in Bagan, Ostello Bello, where you can pay for a day pass and enjoy the pool there. Or Stay in Kumudara Hotel as I mention here. Then when you are ready, there are more temples to explore. I never thought of exploring and finding my favorite temples would be so fun!
3. Eat at Sharky’s
One of the best things I enjoy about traveling is, trying out different food in different places. It brings out the flavors in travels! Sharky’s covers a huge space! I mean they had the big front yard, then upstairs is the AC sitting area and Bar is downstairs. It was a refreshing scene from eating rice every day! Good quality meals from the menu. I loved the Pitta bread with dips and the mains. The service was attentive, friendly and the staff spoke English. If you are missing western food, I recommend Sharky’s in Nyaung-U which is north of Old Bagan. If you have some time left, visiting Bagan Tower and Beach in Bagan also comes recommended.
I hope this series of Bagan itinerary offered you value in terms of what else to do and see besides just visiting Bagan temples.
As for me, after a belly full of food, it was time to head back to the hotel, and off to the bus stop for Inle Lake.

This is the good old Go pro that I take with me everywhere. I recommend it because it is small, lightweight and waterproof. I have had made many memories with this trusted item and looking forward to more.
