Review

Review: Across the road from the hostel is an Ebike shop.

It’s 5 dollars a day to rent an electronic bike get around and see the temples.

Super easy to drive and best way to get around Bagan, just make sure they charge your battery overnight so you don’t run out.

They also offer a cheap laundry service there.

Review: Great community vibe, very easy to meet people and they let us check in early after arriving off a sleeper bus early in the morning.

Organized a fun sunset temple tour for the whole hostel and offered free bowl of pasta every afternoon as a snack.

Day 1

Get an ebike and drive around the main Bagan temples, make sure to catch the hostel sunset tour where you can climb up and see all the temples around, it is beautiful.

Make sure to dress respectfully by covering knees and shoulders when visiting the temples.

Day 2

Make sure to wake up early to watch the sunrise from one of the temples, try to find the more random ones and chances are you will be completely on your own overlooking the countryside, absolutely amazing!

Make sure to dress respectfully by covering knees and shoulders when visiting the temples.
