Fly away to Bagan

On 13 February 2014 by From elephants to kangaroos

Bagan, this is THE city to go when you’re in Myanmar because you’ve seen so many pictures of the magic sunrise above the temples with the Hot air balloons. So instead of a big speech, I’m gonna do something simple in this post today and just show you some pictures of 2 of my best sunrise ever, if not the best sunrise… It’s definitely worth it to wake up at 5:15am, take your bicycle in the middle of the night and cycle with your front torch between the sandy roads to be at the right time on the right place. Suddenly, you are this little kid again who discovers for the 1st time Santa Claus.

1st sunset from the Shwesandaw pagoda (the highest but also the most famous and so the most crowded pagoda):

2nd sunrise from the Bulethi temple, for me the best place, an amazing view, less people, the hot air balloons are coming really in front and close to you!
