Up at 4.30 am so that we could take the 6.15 am just over the hour long flight to Bagan.

A half hour wander the bustling Nyaung U market reminded me not to try some of the street food stalls considering the hygiene standards ie flies.

First pagoda today was Shwe Zigon Pagoda.

Our yellow bus next stopped at the small Gu Pyauk Gyi.

Ananda Temple was next.

Next door where the bus was parked was the small Ananda Ok Kyaung.

Lunch at the Sarabha II Restaurant.

Back to the Amazing Bagan Resort for free time or for some rest / siesta from the early morning rise and the afternoon heat.

Time to see what sunset would be like so back aboard the yellow bus. From the top of Pyathadar (Pyathatgyi) Temple saw another magnificent golden sun set. With a 360 degree vista overlooking some of the over 3,000 temples and stupas that dots the dry dusty bowl around Bagan we were not disappointed.

That night back at the rather posh Amazing Bagan Resort and after dinner was the free puppet show.
