A few kilometers from Mandalay, in Amarapura, don't miss the unbelievable U Bein bridges, which cross a surprise mixture of visitors and friars every single monday.
It is THE town of temple ruins and the first travel stop in Burma. There is no real bullion here, it is the old rocks that make the whole charms of these thousand different churches even more unbelievable. More than 4000 Buddhist monarchs have erected more than 4000 Buddhist monasteries here, many of which have withstood the erosions, seismic events and some dubious reconstruction.
A mandatory stopover in Burma, Bagan will take you to another era, and you will be carried away by the magical atmosphere that is present in the most unexpected place in Burma. Bicycles are probably the best way for sports enthusiasts to see the remains (rent a day for 0.50 pounds, it would be a mistake to say no....), but beware of heatstroke: the temperature can exceed 45°C.... For an absolute memorable experience, do not delay climbing in a warm aeroplane to see the whole complex, a reminder that you will probably place at the top of your itinerary!
When you don't have the money to afford this special, you won't be dissapointed by a dawn from the top of Paya Shwesandaw, which offers a splendid panorama of the nearby temple and the top of its peaks as far as the eyes can see....
