After three nights in Yangon we headed to Bagan. Not having had much down time, Erich and I snoozed during the 1 hour 20 minute flight.
The Bagan Archaeological Zone is a popular destination for Myanmar’s tourists. Between the 11th and 13th centuries, over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in this area (formerly Pagan.) The remains of over 2200 temples and pagodas still survive today.
We stayed at the Aureum Palace Hotel and Resort which has an open lobby and dining area.
The hotel villas exteriors resemble pagodas that surround the property. Villa interior photos are below.
Our guide (Ko) took us to a local restaurant for lunch.
