If you’re wondering what things there are to do in Bagan, read on!

The 3 days in Bagan we spent biking around exploring temples and watching sunrises was one of the most incredible experiences we’ve had in South East Asia, so naturally we started writing this blog the minute we left so we could share some tips!

What is Sustainable Travel & Why Does it Matter?

Let me start this post by saying that in no way do we claim to be perfect when it comes to travelling sustainably – the air-miles we’ve racked up on this trip alone are testament to that.
