Fodor's Expert Review The Hotel at Tharabar Gate
Bagan, Mandalay, Myanmar
Long been the place to stay in Bagan because it's a stone's throw from Ananda Temple and plenty of restaurants, this hotel demonstrates a common trend in Bagan---when demand for accommodations far outweighs supply. Visitors don't get great value for money. Rooms are large and clean but a little run down and the air-conditioning a bit weak. However, well-manicured verdant lawns and trees provides guests with a much-needed break from the dust and dirt of the temples. As is de rigueur, the spacious rooms here are an homage to, and of, wood, with lovely teak floors and traditional Burmese furniture. At night, stroll the lantern-lighted hotel grounds or take in dinner alfresco..
