Itinerary
Stop At:  
Shwezigon Paya
Our guide and driver will pick you up at around 2 pm for guiding you along with the most significant pagodas and temples of Bagan. Our first stop will be at the Shwezigon Pagoda, built by King Anawrahta in the early 11th century as a religious shrine. The Shwezigon Pagoda's name was derived from Ground of Victory Jeyyabhumi and was associated with the two great kings Anawrahta and Kyansitta for their backing of the Buddhist religion. A well-preserved monument, consecrated by one of the most notable royalties of old Bagan, it truly is all awe and splendour when entering the compound of the gilded Shwezigon Pagoda in Nyaung U.

Ananda Temple
As the Bagan temples are located on this plain, visuals from the immense site are some of the features we cannot pass by. The Ananda Temple is one of the more recognizable ones in the region with four magnificent standing Buddha images. It has taken a unique spot in the landscape of pagodas and temple ruins, thus cannot be left aside. Constructed during the 11th century, it is one of Bagan's best known and most beautiful temples, mainly for its magnificent standing Buddha images.

Great tour

Knowledgeable and helpful tour guide. Very nice and comfortable car and ride. We have enjoyed it very much.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
Dear Tanww11 Thank you so much for your great review on your experience across the vastness of the Bagan plains with us to guide you through the temples and history of one of Myanmar's most valued treasures. With hundreds of (still actively used) temples, pagodas and stupas dotted across the horizon, you have made the right decision to book this tour in advance as you may have lost out on the overall picture of the stories behind the Bagan temples. We will certainly bring over the message of your positive feedback to all concerned and who knows, may we see you again in the near future in this amazing destination? With kind regards Asian Trails Myanmar

Tour was good but only offered in...
Eric V
, Mar 2017
Tour was good but only offered in the afternoon, probably because of the amazing grand sunset view at the last temple, however it's the hottest part of the day. Tour made a great selection of the best, major temples to view, even making flexible changes, and adding temples, to improve the experience. We could go pretty anywhere we wanted and stay as long or short as we wanted. Note that the Bagan archaeological zone ticket is not included in the tour so should be purchased at airport or elsewhere before the tour. Tour was quite expensive for not including this ticket, but as said we had a great time and therefore still recommend it if you don't feel like exploring on your own, and want to make the most of 4 hours.
