Visitors to the famous ancient city, Bagan in Myanmar (Burma) will once again be banned from climbing its precious pagodas.
The authorities prohibited tourists from scaling the iconic temples last year, but backpedaled on the ban after tour operators expressed concerns that it would be bad for business.
The latest U-turn is thought to have been motivated by Bagan’s bid to become a Unesco World Heritage Site; in order to qualify for such a status, the authorities must show they are taking sufficient measures to protect the monuments.
