We were delighted by getting to know a little bit of Bagan: market, temples and traditions. Our guide (Nwe Ni Win) was very kind and savvy. She answered all of our questions and took the time to explain everything to ua. Moreover she showed us how people in Bagan used to live and how they have been changing over the time by personal experiences. Plus we ate in a really good traditional place!
