Many call it the Taj Mahal of Myanmar because it was erected by the order of the ruler in honor of his wife who died at childbirth. In the evening we go by bus to Bagan (5.5 hours on the way).
Arrival in Bagan, checking into the hotel. We will explore one of the oldest temple complexes in the world - thousands of pagodas and stupas scattered over a vast territory.
