ths you can do
The weather: Usually the highest January bagan temperatures are around 90°F (32°C), the lower 80°F (27°C) and the lower 46°F (8°C), the lower 55°F (13°C). Bagan is warmer than Mandalay and the Inle Lake area.
Temperatures are highest between 12 and 16 o'clock and you will always be feeling fatigued and overheated. Therefore we suggest you to relax in your own room (most of them have a private outdoor heated bath). Clothes: The temperatures vary strongly between day and night.
There are long periods of solar radiation, so you need to be mindful of this and take a coneflower and suntan. The January is in the arid period, so you should be drinking plenty of fresh air to keep it moist. The month of January is always the main travel time in Bagan, especially around January 1, which is during the (international) New Year holidays.
Because of the large number of visitors the hotel rates in Bagan will be higher and also the number of rooms is restricted, therefore we recommend an early booking. It is an old town with more than 2,000 buddhistic shrines and is known as the "temple city". It' the best place for you to go to temple and experience Myanmar's unparalleled cultur.
On August 24, 2016, an earthquake struck Burma and Bagan - 400 Temple were demolished, including Sulamani and Myauk Guni. Most of them are undergoing repairs, so it is forbidden for the visitor to enter 33 Buddhist monasteries in Bagan. Also the following listed monasteries were slightly affected by the quake, which can interfere with our inspection trip, as some monasteries are sheltered.
The Ananda Temple is one of the biggest and most beautiful in Bagan. It' a perfect sized chrysanthemum and is known for its four gold plated Buddhas. The yearly Pyahto celebration (December to January) attracts many thousand followers who worship here. In the course of the festivities, 1,000 Buddhist writings will be sung continuously for 72 hours and some conversations such as folk dances and comedies will be on.
You must be aware: Shwezigon is one of the most important places of worship in Myanmar. Well-known for its architectural design and texture, the marble tower looks like a "golden bell" adorned with various motifs and adorned with a jewel tower.
Attention: As with other pagodas, this one has been destroyed by earthquake in the course of the years. However, it is always under repair. Bagan's most popular outside sport is balloon riding. The balloon ride starts around 6:30 a.m., a few min after dawn.
This magic ride offers you a wonderful panoramic view of the wide plain of Bagan, from the many sanctuaries to the Irrawaddy River. Attention: The balloon ride is from October 1 to March 31, as the balloon ride is limited by the weather and climat.
