Plain of Temples, Bagan, Myanmar

“One of the great sights of Asia, Bagan’s Plain of Temples displays pagoda after pagoda, large and small, rising up from the green delta plain,” notes Geographic Expeditions, which chose this sacred spot. The kings of ancient Bagan built more than 4,400 Buddhist temples here in only 230 years. Today, around half of the red brick works of artistry are still standing; many of them, such as Anando Pahto, are on every visitor’s hit list, though the more obscure ones offer thrills, too, from hidden frescoes to spectacular views of the landscape.
