Sitting on the Ayeyarwady River is the 26 mile plain of Bagan, a city offering a stunning contrast of beautiful greenery adorned with thousands of temples and pagodas. This landscape presents a spectacular testament to the legacy of the early Buddhist religion, when building a temple was to earn merit in this religious belief.
With us you'll see the 13th century frescoes that adorn the corridors and walls of the Gubyaukgyi 'Cave' Temple, or visit the golden Shwezigon Pagoda that was built by the founder of the Pagan Empire, King Anawrahta. As well as discovering these models of ancient beauty, you can appreciate the craft behind Bagan's famous workshops with a Local Specialist, witnessing how lacquer ware is delicately produced.
