Bagan's sea of stupa, pagoda, and temples are one of the most a-typical and stunning things you'll find in Southeast Asia and a powerfully unique sight globally.
I had the pleasure of exploring Bagan about 3 weeks before the August Earthquake of 2016. The chance to walk in, on, and through so many of the structures is captivating and the weather was wonderfully cooperative despite it being the middle of July.
I was shocked at how dry the climate was compared to what I expected and the presence of so many working fields in and around the temple areas.
