Bagan, the land of temples, temples, and more temples. Sunrise was truly magical! We climbed 50m high temple in the dark and sat there watching the world come alive. The birds start their chorus, the cockerels crowing and as it’s getting lighter hundreds of temples surrounded by mist gradually appear. As the burning sun shows itself the hot air balloons are launched and drift across the horizon creating a magical scene.
For two days we buzzed around Nuaung U, Old Bagan and New Bagan on an electric scooter exploring countless temples, seeing numerous Buddhas and more gold than I’ve ever seen in my life.
