Bagan makes morning people out of all of us. As hot air balloons float over the seemingly endless fields of temples lit by the rising sun, we are reminded of the value of seizing the day. Old Bagan is easily one of the world’s greatest archeological sites, closely rivaling Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu but, at least for now, minus the crazy crowds of tourists. The temples themselves are believed to have been built by the Bagan kings between 1057 and 1287, before earthquakes together with the invading forces of Kublai Khan destroyed the kingdom. It is said that only 2230 of the original 4450 temples survive today.
