Bagan – unrecognized, world heritage

In Mndalay we bought ticket to Bagan at our hotel. The ticket cost us 11$ per person. Bus station in Mandalee is not in the city, so it wasn’t possible to buy a ticket at the bus station. Early in the morning we took the pickup truck and taken to the bus station. There we were loaded into very, very comfortable bus. We even regretted that the move was so short. At 7 am departure and 2pm arrival already.

Waiting for their flight, everyone will find something interesting to do.

For$ 10 we found only one hotel. This air-conditioned room( although very old) and with Breakfast. Facilities in the room. And there are rooms and shared facilities. All other guest house we were offered rooms from$ 12, and no air conditioning. Here, no one traded at all.

Opposite the property there is a small shop. Well, a very familiar name, but the similarities, unfortunately, in name only.

In Bagan a lot of restaurants. Near our guest house and were with Italian and Thai dishes. there is Also a restaurant with free Internet. Ordered food or drinks and sit to itself on health.
