Bagan: Top 5 best temples

Bagan tempels

Bagan is an area of 42 km² in Myanmar which is full of temples. There are more than 4400 temples! A trip to Myanmar without spending a few days in Bagan is unthinkable. The temples that appear throughout this area give a fantastic impression of the wealth that this place had to radiate almost a thousand years ago. Bagan is often compared to Angkor in Cambodia, but I undoubtedly prefer Bagan over Angkor. Bagan is bigger, prettier, the temples are more interesting and the atmosphere is magical. Visiting all of the temples in Bagan is an impossible task. Which are the best temples in Bagan?
