The temples of Bagan and Mount Popa


Amongst the most popular destinations in Myanmar, Bagan is on the itinerary of almost every traveller – with good reason: the vast, grand scale of the exteriors (numbering over 2,000 temples) contrasts with the extraordinarily intricate detailing of the interiors to make for a truly unique experience.

50 kilometres to the south east of Bagan, Mount Popa offers panoramic views of the surrounding plains from its 1,518m summit. Its famous and sacred monastery, Popa Taungkalat, sits dramatically atop a volcanic plug on its slopes.

Bagan and Mount Popa can be reached by road, rail and boat transport from other parts of Myanmar, and Bagan Airport has regular flights from Yangon, Mandalay and other parts of the country.
