I hope that every traveler has the opportunity to experience sunrise from a temple in Bagan - one of the most astonishing places on earth.
In general, the history of Burma is amazing. Specifically, the history of Bagan is unlike any other on earth. It's a little dizzying, in fact - tens of thousands of temples built on a dusty plain by kings, emperors, war lords, and chieftains that stretch on and on until the buck up against the horizon. The best way to explore Bagan is to get out on foot and wander - preferably in the presence of a knowledgeable local guide.
