During the 11th and 13th centuries, over 10000 temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in the Bagan plains, of which the remains of over 2200 temples and pagodas still exist


So many temples and places to see, simply never not enough time


Temples are also a place for a good market. Or just to dry fish...


"You can leave your hat on....." but not your shoes, when entering a temple. And it is wise to put them in a locker because of the monkeys...


Mount Popa, a monastery high above


People of Popa. And the monkeys


Making of palm wine


The sunsets at Bagan plains


And with temples, there are of course the monks


Mandalay

Mandalay is the gate in/out of Myanmar in the north


Poor people live by the river in a hut. Not so many modern facilities


The late night market offers almost anything


Some of the monks are quite pleased when photos are taken
