Myanmar, Bagan Guide (B): Temple Run in the Ancient City of Bagan

Upon our arrival at the new Bagan bus station, we spent 15 minutes of haggling to get a Jeep to bring us to Manisanda Hotel, the agreed rate was 8000 Kyats. This probably is the only bad experience we encounter in our trip. Those barkers have guts to offer us high rates, and yet they are not the one who will be driving! Hope the Bagan tourism office can impose some regulation on this, perhaps a fix rate or a published pricing list, to give tourists a smooth welcome experience.

Departing the Bus station, we have to pass through a sort of checkpoint, which we paid Tourist entry fee - 15 USD/EURO. Which we only used ones during our Bagan Temple day trip.

We book a private car for 2 days (77,000 kts) covering Bagan Temple tours with sunset for the first day, and Sunrise and Mt Popa for our second day. This rate is a good bargain because it was low season that time. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
