What to Do

Arriving at Bagan, I paid USD 25 for visiting all of the temple. It's really cheap reminding there are so many temple in Bagan. After that I went to guest house that I already booked before come here. For going to guest house, I grab a taxy with fare MMK 1000. I stayed at Shwe Nadi Guest House located in Nyaung U which very strategic place because there are so many nearby attractions. After check in, my first destination is Shwezigon Pagoda which is very close to my guest house. It's only 1,2 kilometers away and need 13 minutes walk there.

Shwezigon Pagoda located in Nyaung U Village and one of the oldest monument in Bagan. I'm so impressed with this pagoda because this pagoda is paint on gold color which is glimmering in the sun. That's why Myanmar called as The Goldn Land, because mostly the pagoda are painted Gold glittering on the sunny day and in the evening this pagoda will illuminated by spotlights that give the place a mystical atmosphere.

Shwezigon Pagoda was built in 1044 by King Anawrahta who founded the Bagan Kingdom for enshrine several Buddha relics, including a copy of the sacred tooth relic of Kandy in Sri Lanka. Did you know, guys? according to Legend, they said that the place where the pagoda built was chosen by white elephant which carrying the relic on his back. Very cool, huh?

Next destination, I'm going to Mani Sithu Market. This market is 2 kilometers away from Shwezigon Pagoda, so I take a walk which need 20 minutes to arrive there. Mani Sithu Market also known as Nyaung U Market, is place where you can find fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers. This market also a fantastic one stop spot for gifts and souvenirs. You can find everything here.
