Bagan, Myanmar was definitely subject to the same amount of hype but boy did it deliver. What an incredibly magical place, like nowhere else we've seen. We toured around the temples for two days on cute electric scooters and had so much fun. No need for words. I'll just let the pictures do the talking in this post.
For practical info about visiting the area see our other post for tips on visiting Myanmar.
We only had a couple of days in the city so we decided to take our first afternoon and evening to view the sights in the north of town and then walk up Mandalay Hill to see the sunset. We wandered around the Kuthodaw Pagoda also known as the World's Largest Book and also took a walk around the Shwenandaw Kyaung monastery.
around on foot or by Songthaew. But we decided to take a few day trips with a rented car to get to know the place a little better. On our first day trip away from Hua Hin we headed North and East. This time we decided to head south to see some of the beautiful coast of the province of Prachuap Khiri Khan.
