Places to Visit in Myanmar

Around Bagan

SALAY (SALE) MONASTRY
A century old Salay Monastery is situated in Salay town, around 1.5 hours drive south of Bagan. It can be reached by boat or by car. Artistic sculptures depicting the live of Buddha can be seen in this wooden monastery.

 

 

MT. POPA (Mount Popa)
This mountain can be reached during a day trip from Bagan or on the way to Shan State respectively Mandalay. It is an extinct volcano and known as the abode of “Nats” (spirits).
Although Myanmar converted to Buddhism in the 11th Century, animist worshipping is still mixing with Buddhism. Various herbs and plants are growing on the mountain. One can see the panoramic view from top of the steep mountain after mastering the (for some people challenging) ascent.

The aggressive monkeys and the dirt however put some visitors off.

From the resort with the same name one has a wonderful view. Even one skips climbing to the peak of the mountain, one can still enjoy the nice panoramic view  and landscape.
