I read most of the posts in Bagan section and it was very informative, thanks.

I just have few questions which need more clarification:

How many kilometers is new Bagan from the bus station?

I would like to go by horse cart, around what price should I negotiate?

Is it hard to find a guest house in new Bagan?

 

Cheers,

Hi Salapao,

You're very welcome for the informative posts  :D.

 

The Bus station is in Nyaung U, just next to the Shwezigon pagoda, so to go to New Bagan there should be around eight to ten kilometers, it would take you about 10 to 15 minutes by car I think and then, horse cart maybe something around 30 minutes. Not sure about the price though, I know that for one day it is around 25000 kyats, to go around Bagan by horse cart. Then for one trip, considering they will charge you proportionally more, you may be asked 4000 or 5000 kyats I think. But if you are not in a hurry you can take your time to negotiate!!

 

You have some guest houses in New Bagan, but never stayed there. If you know when you are traveling, it may be safer for you to find your guest house in advance and book it. Bagan is getting crowdier, and even if you go during hot season (starting around now and until June) you may face shortage of rooms.

 

Have a great trip,

Cheers,
Max

Thanks Max for your informative post, I'll check the available guesthouse in new Bagan or do you think it's better to stay in old Bagan? 

What are the advantages of each place?

5000 Kyats is reasonable price for me, I think I'll take the horse horsecart.

I think 5000 Kyats is a bit optimistic.

If you just want to make the trip from the bus station to new Bagan, I think they will charge more 8000-10000 Kyats,

Last time, I went to Bagan, I was charged 5000 Kyat for a car from the bus station to Amazing Bagan hotel, and the distance is really closer.


A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step!
