Bagan is a beautiful place in Myanmar where every tourist tries makes a visit. This is a wonderful city having huge tourist demand, especially in the summer months. If you are visiting Myanmar, then it will be like missing out the best part of Myanmar if you are not visiting Bagan. Some of the reasons why you should visit Myanmar are as follows.
When I visited Bagan last year, the weather was perfect and there was nothing to complain about. The weather was romantic, as I would say and the place is away from the humdrum of the city. My guide has insisted that we should visit this place on bike. Though reluctant in the first instance, I took a bike to Bagan. What I noticed was that most of the people take a bike tour to Bagan. To be honest, I was really mesmerized and awestruck to find this beautiful place with wild landscape. We parked our bike beside a deserted temple with decaying brick. The wildness and the ancient smell of the building was something like a dream. Bagan is a place like the same we have heard in fairy tales and I am sure that you will be enjoying every part of Bagan when you visit the place. So, ask your Myanmar travel agent to include Bagan in your tour package.
