TravelPod Member ReviewsAye Yar River View Hotel Bagan
The hotel is just outside the walls of the old imperial city of Bagan, which means that it is nowhere. The hotel is pleasant enough but older and rather dated. Good sized room but no sound insulation at all. You can hear a conversation in the corridor. There are far better choices in town.

We took another night bus to Bagan.

While the rest of the party decided to leave, Bagan hot air balloon riding ...
... spent all morning exploring and went to a beautiful vegetarian cafe for lunch.
Again we indulged in the great food but my favourite bit was the Myanmar juice. We asked for a beer and the waiter leant over us and quietly whispered that they don't sell it here as they don't have a licence but he could offer us "Myanmar juice" served in a black plastic bag. We were given cups and our black bags and enjoyed ...
... We had no phone and were a 20 minute drive from town. Thankfully a police officer nearby lent us his phone and got the bike people to bring a new battery. As we waited on the main road 2 other people came to ask if we needed help- Myanmar people are so nice!
After hiding our in the room for the rest of the day we headed back out with a new bike battery to see the sunset from Shwesandaw Paya which had incredible 360 degree views ...
