Dawn at the Shwe San Daw Pagoda - Review of the Shwesandaw Pagoda, Bagan, Myanmar
It is a great place for any tourist coming to Myanmar. From Mandalay to Bagan we bought a coach pass from a coach station in Yangon. Departures are at 9.30 pm and reach Bagan at about 4 am with a stopover at 1 am. Sailing to a small town near the Shwezigon Pagoda, the coach will stop and you will be greeted by a number of locals who will offer you transport to or even an inexpensive accommodation if you do not pre-reserv.
There are 12000-15000 km from the New Bagan stop. It' s a little out of our former budgets, so we chose to drive only in half to Shwe san da wogoda, with only 5000 keys by horns. Heaven was still darkness and the roads were completely empty with a ray of bright green from the lantern.
After about half an hours we reached the highest pogode of the area, Shwe San Daw, where we can admire the beautiful views of Bagan at sundown. We' re proud to be the first to be up there with lots of free space to set up the cameras and take pictures at noon.
This was a breathtaking sight and you have to drive there when you are in Myanmar. Many of the places we went to were pagoda or temple and it would be difficult to say why we were enjoying every place. This is a really old pagoda from 1057. From the top you have a wonderful panoramic sight over Bagan, where you can see the temple, the pagoda andupas. Some small, others large.
It is worthwhile, only to give you an idea of the location Bagan. We' re here at dawn and dusk. Recommended for sunrises, less visitors and enjoying breathtaking views and quiet atmospher. Fortunately we can also admire the sun, the night vision and the sunrise:-).
Prepare, it is quite a ascent, very precipitous and 5 steps high, but there is a stable hand rail and it is worthwhile for looking over the flats of Bagan. You can see several hundred other Stuppa and Pagoda and you can go around and get a 360 degrees vision.
It'?s a worthwhile work. Were you in the Shwesandaw Pagoda?
