Have you ever seen the sunrise with balloon in Buledi Pagoda Bagan Myanmar ? If not, you have to try when visiting Bagan. Now, i want share with you what you can do in Bagan in one day. So, on this post i want share with you what i've do in one day in Bagan. Are you ready?

To Sightseeing in Bagan you need rent a taxi / ebike or motorcycle. I dont know much about the rate. Its about $10 for ebike and $15 for motorcycle for one day. You can rent in your hostel / hotel.

Enjoying Morning in Tea Center

I don't see coffee shop in my way, but i can easily found tea center. So, you can try to enjoy the morning in a tea center arround Bagan. I think, burmese love to drink tea than coffee. In Marhangwe Tea Center, i just try to order a cup of tea, but the item i get is a milk tea. Is the default tea in Myanmar ? Because yesterday when i order a tea on restaurant, i got milk tea. Its hard to get ice tea like in Indonesia.

There are no pricetag in the menu, but we believe that this is not expensive. I need to pay arround 8000 Kyaat for the rice, tea, soup and anchovy. Its not too expensive and standard breakfast in Indonesia but with different food.

I was started the tour arround old Bagan in afternoon, before we start the tour we visit a local restaurant. I think its not restaurant, in Indonesian its called WARUNG. I dont know how to say warung in english because restaurant is too luxurious.
