Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, has been high on my list of places to visit for about two years now. Bagan, unlike the much-visited and hyper popular Siem Reap, is relatively untouched and has only recently become a travel hot spot. The area is known for its beautiful sunrises and sunsets, gilded temples as well as dangerously beautiful hot air balloon rides. It’s almost as if Cathay Pacific knows that I’m aching to go, and Yangon has been offered as a Fanfare destination regularly over the past couple of months (Bagan is a short plane ride away from Yangon). If not in 2016, then there’s a 100% chance that I’ll be making the trip over in 2017!
I’ve curated a few photos of Bagan in Myanmar from talented Instagrammers. Hopefully it will keep me motivated to get to this wondrous place sooner, rather than later, and inspire you to visit Bagan as well.
A big thank you to the Instagrammers below who were kind enough to let me share their photos! I encourage you to take a look at the rest of their Instagram feeds for more beautiful pics. The beautiful photo above is from judithscharnowski on Pixabay.
