Experience 21: Go temple-bagging, by bike, in Bagan.
We visited Began in December 2012 and it was spectacular. [Open this link to see our reflections in our blog – at the foot of each page, on the left, open link to older posts to see all three articles on Began].
I would strongly recommend trying to visit Began before it becomes too commercialized and on the mass-tourism circuit.
