Archaeology Tour of Bagan

Bagan, Burma

A full-day experience, with an expert on-hand, exploring one of Asia’s most striking archaeological sites. Bagan’s architectural wonders include the famous Ananda and Shwezigon pagodas, showcasing Burma’s legendary kings and the country’s glorious culture

Join an archaeology expert for the day to unlock Bagan’s remarkable archaeological zone.  See 2000 glittering monuments rising up from the flat, dry landscape, and then focus-in on the stunning Ananda Temple, one of the most celebrated temples in Bagan with its towering Buddha statues and learn about the ancient Tharabar Gate. A short drive away is Upali Thein, a mid-13th-century ordination hall with painted frescoes, also a must-see. Then there’s Shwezigon, one of the oldest, holiest and most impressive monuments of Bagan, with its gilded stupa-shaped pagoda housing Bagan’s largest surviving buddhas. The 12th century Sulamani Temple, southwest of Bagan, is another standout sight, often celebrated as the jewel of the region.  Walking shoes or sandals are a good idea, as even flat trails can have loose rocks.
