Sunset gazing along local Buddhist Monks atop a pagoda in Bagan Sunset gazing along local Buddhist Monks atop a pagoda in Bagan  | BaganMyanmar  |  Quintessentially Bagan experience, planned and timed to perfection by the team at Belmond Road to Mandalay Luxury River Cruise. Nothing more simple, yet more unique – this to me is the true and mere definition of luxury travel. So we deboarded our gorgeous Road to Mandalay Cruise, mighty floating on the Ayeyarwady River, and were transferred to the shores of Old Bagan, to begin our afternoon experience, which began exploring Old Bagan and followed by our Sunset gazing along local Buddhist Monks atop a pagoda expereince.  This is what you do, you look around for the highest – hopefully least crowded – pagoda, out of the over 2200 still remaining, and – to your guide’s concern – you climb and climb and climb to enjoy this breathtaking sunset over Bagan’s Archeological Site.
