Aye Yar River View Resort
The imposing domes of the lobby area fit in perfectly with the aesthetic of the ancient town of Bagan. A hotel since 1958, refurbishments have left the property looking undeniably contemporary, though the rooms have a definite Burmese style.
A truly unique place, this ancient city is home to the most concentrated collection of holy temples and stupas in the world. There are some 4,000 structures, most of which date back to the 11th and 12th centuries. They mostly have an abandoned look and are consumed by foliage, but this only adds to the romantic atmosphere and incredible panorama.
