City of Gold

Bagan is one of my favourite ancient cities. There is simply no way to describe it that really does it justice. As the former capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, a site dotted with more than 2,000 chedis, you can imagine how stunning it is, but being there and experiencing it in person – particularly in the rainy season when the crowds are smaller – is one of those ‘wow’ moments. Sunset over these glittering gold spires is truly a sight.

What really made the experience for me was a horse and buggy ride. It might sound unusual, but lounging in the back of a horse cart while motor scooters and beat-up trucks rumbled past really made me appreciate the value of slowing down and ‘living in the moment’.
