Old Bagan

Ancient Bagan

At the heart of the archaeological zone of Bagan are several of the main temples, city walls, a museum, a reconstructed palace, restaurants, some shops and a number of hotels ranging from middle class to upper class. I have read on many hotel reviews about TA that there is no nearby dinner in the hotels in old Bagan except in your own hotel. Strong river currents have already washed away half the area of Old Bagan.

You can explore Old Bagan on walking or cycling. Between Nyaung U and New Bagan, the old town is easy to reach by bike from both sides. As the best caf├ęs are in the parking lot in front of the Tharabartor, you can start and end the itinerary. Initially, the tile door would have been one of four entries to the old town, although the whole west half of the wall has long since sunk into the whirling water of the Ayeyarwaddy.

Today the Tharabartor is particularly remarkable for its couple of neighbouring nature (ghost) shrines, which were added in the latter eighteenth or early nineteenth centuries and dedicated to nature as brothers and sisters. Customs have it that whenever you go through the door, you should cheep your bugle out of deference, although we are a little skeptical of how many bugles there would have been in the end of the eighteenth centuries.

Go through the door and continue along the street until you see the crowded Pitaka Taik shrine on your right. However, historic proof that Anawratha plundered the Mon town of Thaton is poor at best. Note the ornamental stonework that is believed to have been stolen from other ruins during restoration in the eighteenth centuries, along with the pea motifs on the canopy.

It was built in 1131 and subsequently restored in the eighteenth or early nineteenth century. Last updated August 18, 2017. with 12Go Asia. Some of our most popular attractions and attractions around Bagan. Some of our favorite accommodations in Bagan.

The New Bagan or the Old Bagan? - Ba Bagan Forum

The New Bagan or the Old Bagan? Can someone please explain to me the difference between these cities, in which cities you would rather remain and why? The New Bagan or the Old Bagan? Busses and ships all arriving in New Bagan. It' not a big city, but it is where most humans are, and that is relatively bustling.

{\pos (192,210)}Old Bagan is our favorite place far and wide. Quiet and a little further away, but there is a small town/village with restaurants and several accommodations. The latter consented to take us to Old Bagan for free, provided we had set him up for the next workday.

For our last overnight stay we returned to New Bagan, as we had a very early coach that departed from New Bagan and took us east. The New Bagan or the Old Bagan? Thanks for your answer, are there many restaurants in Old Bagan? The New Bagan or the Old Bagan? The New Bagan or the Old Bagan?

#1 confuses New Bagan with the city of Nyaung U, where the boat and transportation are sited. Near Nyaung U is Old Bagan, by far the most central part of Bagan to visit the vast majority of the major monuments, and the perfect option although rates in this part are much more costly.

The New Bagan is more secluded and was recently constructed to accommodate the locals who were taken out of Old Bagan to found this new town. Also there are many churches here, but the area does not have the Old Bagan aura. Accommodation was in Old Bagan and New Bagan near the city.

Although we got more for your budget in terms of lodging, we didn't like New Bagan at all, found it secluded and lacking in character. As a good trade-off, a Golden Express type resort would be between Nyaung U and Old Bagan, well placed for the Temple, but less expensive than Old Bagan City.

Travelling by road and driving makes little sense in which area you live, but if you hope to reach the major shrines by bicycle or horse-drawn carriage, and especially at dawn or dusk, the Old Bagan area is much better situated.

The New Bagan or the Old Bagan? Thank you folks, the old Bagan sounds like our kind of place, apart from the high price, but if you look at it this journey is twice as expensive as the one we normally charge for accommodation. The New Bagan or the Old Bagan? We' ve been to Nyaung U. It's before your arrival in New and Old Bagan.

There is a train stop and an airfield if you are arriving by air. Lower price (double room from 15 $/night), It is near the sanctuary, about 1 km and if you rent a bicycle it is much less expensive and more fun than with a horse-drawn coach. The New Bagan or the Old Bagan?

#1 seems to sound like they're talkin' about Nayung U - the airfield is on the outskirts of the city and the ship was sailing from the other side of the city and I saw a lot of busses pass through. If I felt like a wealthy tourist hotspot, while NU was a true city with true natives, restaurants, non-souvenir stores and banking, I wouldn't be staying in Old Bagan.

While Old Bagan felt like a haunted city, New Bagan was somehow strange and soulless. They are all very near and unless you rent a bicycle, it does not really make any difference where you live as there are many chariots and cabs. The New Bagan or the Old Bagan?
