Bagan Holidays

Step back in time

An absolute must-see for anyone visiting Myanmar, charming Bagan is home to the largest and densest concentration of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins in the world with many dating from the 11th and 12th centuries.

Its importance lies in its heritage rather than its present. First built around AD 849, from the 11th century to the end of the 13th century it was the capital of a region roughly the size of modern Myanmar. We love that the Magic of Bagan has inspired visitors to Myanmar for nearly 1,000 years.

Twin your visit with a trip to Mandalay, the cultural capital of Myanmar, or head to Yangon for a slice of history.
