Myanmar Adventures // Part 2

Having been in and around Yangon for 4 days we then set off to travel a bit more around the country. Our first stop was Bagan which is an ancient city filled with thousands of buddhist temples and pagodas. Between the 11th and 13th century over 10,000 temples were built of which about 3,000 remain today.
