Temples of Bagan
We enjoyed Bagan very much, the site is impressive and there's nothing like cycling through the area, feasting your eyes on all those temples dotted over the plain, their tops towering to the skies. Some temples boast frescoes inside, others have nice stucco carvings on the outside or a collection of interesting glazed tiles depicting religious stories, and for sure, you'll never run out of Buddhas while visiting them. This internet site will tell you everything you need / want to know about Bagan's temples, we recommend a visit.
But to be honest, overall, we missed the sculptures, the diversity and the richness of art you can see in Angkor and its surrounding temples, not to speak of the surrounding "jungle", all things which make Angkor such a special place and our big favourite. If we ever come back to Bagan, we might follow suit with many tourists and splurge for a balloon flight over the plain. It must be a great experience and probably worth the expense, that is, if we can afford it …
