Any reason why Bagan should be visited before Mandalay or vice versa?

Jump to last reply

I am about to book my internal flights with Onestop myanmar and they tell me that the airfare is cheaper if you travel clockwise than zig zag therefore recommend that we visit Bagan before Mandalay. On other reports I have read that we should visit Mandalay first because it is less interesting than Bagan. I don't really mind before or after because I will be visiting both and don't necessarily like to compare regions. I have however reserved my room at the Tharbar Gate in Bagan through agoda which means I would have to change my reservations dates if I consider the route suggested by the agency. I have read your TR report Kathie and Shelley and it seems that both of you visited Manadaly first. What are your thoughts on this? By the way I tried to connect with Santa Maria and after a return email and suggestions on their part I never heard back from them.
