Petit Futé

Choose an hotel in Bagan (Myanmar Burma) ?

Bagan has a lot of small hotels and motels, and also some splendid hotels directly on the Irrawaddy river. Be carefull, because there is also a lot of "very average" hotel or even bad and for the same price or cheaper you can get very good motel, guest house.
If you can, pamper yourself and take a suite along the Irrawaddy river or at a nice 4 stars hotels on site.

Hotel in Bagan in march - April - May.

It is very hot to extremely hot in Bagan in April and May, with very often temperature above 40 C° and up to 44 C° or more.
Electricity is very scarce in Bagan, most of the hotels have generators but the small hotels (1, 2 and even 3 stars hotels) do not start the generator during day time, only after 5 or 6 PM.
So it could be very very hot in your room.
For these hot months, it could be a very good idea to put some extra money and to stay at a good 4**** hotel, or an hotel with a real swimming pool.

How to visit Bagan

The atmosphere in Bagan is unique and we had enjoyed years without visitors. Few recommandations :

- Avoid the main pagodas for the sunset sunrise, it is overcrowded, so much that it is spoiling all the pleasure. Find your own nice place during the stay and come back for the evening.

- Bike is probably the best way to discover Bagan but the site is huge and the weather is usually very hot.
- Electric bike rental is now very very popular, you can discover in silence Bagan, and not being exhausted biking under the sun. Probably now the best way.

- Car : it is confortable, cool (air con), fast, but you will miss something if you do only car for visiting Bagan.

- Horsecard : An other very nice way to discover Bagan (try one day with electric bike, and one day or half day with horse cart). Slow pace, quiet, .... and provide local job.
