Where to stay in Bagan: The Shwe Na Di Guest House
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 market, stores, and restaurants. For me this is great since I like walking around and talking to locals when I’m not sightseeing.
Burma: The Yangon Circle Line Train
The Circle Train literally circles around Yangon which means anyone who is bored can decide to sit and just enjoy the full 3 hour ride into the deep towns. Hop off if you find something interesting then hop back in to the next passing train.
