Myanmar day 10

Golden Shwezigon Paya Bagan.jpg

Before my Myanmar trip, a friend of mine told me "you have to go to Bagan". With this curiosity, we dashed straight to see sunrise after a long overnight train ride. When I climbed on the first stupa in half darkness, I looked around and realized why people fell in love with Bagan. There were literally thousands of stupas (symbol of enlightenment and one of the most ancient icons of Buddhist art) around us.

We went on a full-day temple visit followed by our first sunset in Bagan... It was just an amazing day!
