_MG_0270

The moment I alighted the bus at the new bus terminal in Nyang-U, I immediately haggled for a horse cart. I really needed to hurry to catch the sunrise. I quickly grabbed one and told the driver to bring me to a temple where I could climb to the top and watch the sunrise. The driver offered me 10,000 kyat for the sunrise plus sending me to my hotel in New Bagan after watching the sunrise. Continue reading Arriving Bagan, Burma and Watching the Sunrise.

So when I arrived in Bagan, I was thinking to grab a manual bike but the e-bike stole my attention. Budget travellers have the only option to stay either in Nyang-U or New Bagan. Hotels in Old Bagan are quite expensive. So considering from where I stayed which was in New Bagan, it would be quite tiring to pedal around those temples. So I decided to try on the e-bike. It cost me 8000 kyat for a day. Continue reading E-biking Bagan, Burma.

Sunset in Bagan. Burma.

One of the things not to miss when in Bagan is to witness the sun setting at the horizon adding grandiose spark to the century old majestic temples.

I positioned myself at the top of North Guni temple. Yes, you can climb up way to the top in this temple and have yourself awed as the dusk embraced the ancient temples.
