Kathie: What to see in Bagan and advice on touring the right way?

Jump to last reply

Kathie (and anyone else who can help),

A follow up question on MinThu. As you know we booked him for December but have yet to figure out the specifics of what we want to do with him and how we can best tour Bagan to see all the things worth seeing and also not burn ourselves out.

I'm looking for a recommended itinerary -- or at least major must-sees -- in the timeframe we have.

Here's sort of what our schedule looks like now:

Dec 25 arrive Bagan roughly around 10:30 AM & will transfer to hotel
Dec 26 free
Dec 27 Balloons Over Bagan ride tentatively scheduled for morning; late morning on is free
Dec 28 free
Dec 29 fly to Inle roughly around 9 AM

Given this, how would you break the touring up and what would say is essential to see? I would hazard to guess that we won't want to spend every waking minute in Bagan touring in a horsecart, but I really don't know.

I need to give MinThu a better sense of what we want to do and how we can best use him.

I also know that earlier on (in my original Burma thread) there was talk of maybe a good option being grabbing the car and going further outside of Bagan. What are your thoughts on that?
