Pretty expensive for what you get. More or less executed what i told – no consulting or giving tipps. But friendly and good process.

We had a wonderful holiday, and Backyard Travel did a great job both of helping us plan it, and looking after us while we were there. They were unfailingly kind and helpful, and were very flexible and accommodating whenever we wanted to make minor changes to the daily plans, either adding or dropping something in the programme. I would definitely recommend them to anyone thinking of a trip to Myanmar but not quite knowing where to start with planning it.

Want to Learn more about Bagan?

Venture through the area’s gorgeous temples and beyond to discover the daily life of villagers in this sacred site. Bagan’s history is recorded on its monumental pagodas, but its present, carved into terraced fields and fine handicrafts, is no less of an attraction.



CHARACTER

Especially in small rural villages like those around Bagan, the Burmese are a welcoming and engaged people, known to address visitors as “brothers” and “sisters” shortly after meeting them.



CLIMATE

The months between November and February are the driest and coolest time to visit. Rains are common between May and September, while temperatures can be very hot in spring.



ENTERTAINMENT

While you’ll find some bars and restaurants around Nyaung U, Bagan is a quiet temple town. Catching the sunset atop a golden pagoda makes going to bed early more than worthwhile.



CULTURE

Unlike archeological sites like Angkor, the Bagan plain is home to several small farming and artisan villages. These traditional, rural Burmese towns add to the local color and photographic charm of the region.



LANGUAGE

Burmese is the official language in Myanmar, the most widely spoken as well. In small villages around Bagan, you’re likely to hear some local dialects. English and Chinese are common in tourist areas.



HISTORY

The surviving 2,000 temples of Bagan were once part of a 10,000-temple compound! Most of the temples date from height of the Kingdom of Pagan from the 11th to 13th century.

As one of the greatest architectural sites in Asia, Bagan is without doubt one of the highlights on any trip to Myanmar. Between the 11th and 13th centuries over 10,000 Buddhist temples were built a part of the ‘Pagan’ Empire.
