On our way to Bagan.. (after exploring Yangon, the former capital of Myanmar and the city of the most smiling people). Where should we make our base? We had three options to choose from – Old Bagan (historical center and the closest gateway to all the pagodas), Nyaung U (bustling town center) and New Bagan (the most southern part of the town). New Bagan is the winner. After the arrival, we head straight to the closest stand to greet “local businessmen” and rent an electric bicycle. You can get (almost) everywhere on it. And fast – well, as fast as your (almost) 30-kilometer-per-hour electric buddy allows you.
