ENGAGING EXPERIENCES & AUTHENTIC CULTURE

What to Do in Bagan?

Temple fatigue? Looking for things to do in Bagan between sunrise and sunset? We understand that after a few days, even the most curious traveler can begin to lose their fascination with the myriad temples in Myanmar. To keep our guests (and ourselves) engaged, we’ve worked together with artisans, farmers, monks, and cooks in our local communities to share Burmese culture with you. Express your creativity in our sandpainting class, learn Burmese cooking, or make your own bamboo souvenir in a family workshop. If it’s a special occasion, enjoy the spectacular view from above on a hot air balloon ride over Bagan or Inle Lake at sunrise. Make new friends, learn another culture, and create memories to last a lifetime!
