Indeed, there is no better way to take in Bagan’s ancient pagoda-studded landscape, spanning over 24 square-kilometres, than from the sky in a hot air balloon.
On any given morning you can expect to be carried on a gentle breeze, looking out onto the Bagan plains as sunrise lights up more than 4000 pagodas and Buddhist temples in what was the capital of the first Burmese empire.
It’s a magical view that has become cemented in the imaginations of travellers.
“I did this at sunrise on New Year’s Day. It was the very best way to celebrate a new year – ever. A magical experience and brilliantly managed and organised. Worth every cent.”
– Christine Manfield
