  • One of the beautifully designed pagoda in Bagan. Just hop on an e bike and visit this one. During sunset, it is amazing.

  • If you like to be away from the crowds like some of us do, if you don't mind dry and dusty environments and if you are not looking to climb on top of a pagoda, Bulethi temple is just the place for you. I found this place by chance while driving around aimlessly on some of the back roads of Bagan. My Burmese driver and I were the only ones around. There are several small brick structures and two larger pagodas. The dusty setting brings them all together in one beautiful panorama.
  • Nice group of temples right off Anawrahta Road on the way towards Sulamuni and Dhammayangyi. They are gated up now so no longer available to climb to watch sunrise and sunset, so if you plan on doing so anyways (which you shouldn't) know that it will now require some climbing on ancient ruins rather than walking up steps
