[UPDATED] Where to stay in Bagan: The Shwe Na Di Guest House
Located in Nyaung U, Shwe Na Di Guest House is a great budget option for the average traveler.
While Nyaung U is actually far from temples and pagodas of Old Bagan, what’s good about this area is that it’s closer to the bus terminal, market, stores, and restaurants. For me this is great since I like walking around and talking to locals when I’m not sightseeing.
I paid $20 for a room and I got a double bed, private bathroom, air conditioning, television, fridge, and breakfast. Talk about value!
The toilet needs some fixing though, some pipes were broken.
Breakfast is served outside the room but if you are on the second floor then you have to go down. Nothing special just coffee, bread, jam, and fruit.
Making a reservation in Shwe Na Di Guest House is actually a little tricky. The last time I asked they told me they don’t have a website or e-mail address so either just walk-in or call in advance. What I did was after landing in Yangon I called them up.
