Bagan: the temple city – Myanmar Part II

We drove past so many beautiful rice fields and finally stopped to Bagan.

Between this cosy village and the others two nearby – Nyaung U and Old Bagan – it’s located the so-called ‘Bagan Archeological Zone’. Covering more than 10 sq. km, an incredible number of ancient temples are scattered everywhere.

The hot weather was killing us, so we rented bikes to explore the area, riding in bumpy dirty roads and trails that connect all the temples to the main road.  That day was unforgettable: not only I loved like crazy the temples of Bagan – visiting archeological sites is one of the many weird passions I have – but also we had a great time riding among the villages, stretching our necks to have a 360 degree view of the area, trying to find new temples to explore as far as the eye can see.
