When you come to Myanmar, it is better to go to Bagan certainly. Bagan is a place where there is no doubt that it will become a world heritage in the future. There are many pagodas, a lot of temples. The city has not been developed so much and you can see it as it is with the old landscape as it is. Although four to five years ago, toulists had to turn around by a bicycle, but now, electric motorcycles have become widespread in recent years, It was fun to travel around Bagan by the electric motorcycles.
If you look at the pictures you will understand, but Bagan has many temples, but everything is just worth seeing. When you come to travel to Myanmar, please be sure to do it.

Ferry (From Mandalay)
There is a ferry service between Bagan and Mandalay. However, it does not operate because the amount of river water decreases during the dry season. Please take care. So it is closed from March until May. The period of cancellation depends on the amount of river water. Please check the amount of water as it is different year by year.
It takes about 10 hours by bus from Yangon to Bagan. It is 23,000 kya for first class (VIP) and 16,000 kya for economy class. Please acknowledge that the price will be slightly different depending on the bus company. I recommend that you take 10 hours from Yangon so it is good to go by the VIP bus at night.
In addition, since Mandalay ⇔ Bagan is operating a ferry, people going from Mandalay may consider examining going by ferry. For details, please refer to the above. In addition, bus tickets can be bought at most hotels, guesthouse front desks, etc.
※ The inside of Myanmar bus is very cold, please bring long sleeve, coat etc. Please keep in mind that even if it is a southern country, you will lose physical condition if you ride a bus by a T – shirt.
