Bagan is one of the most visited sites in Myanmar, and therefore has a nice network of accommodation. There are plenty of cheap hotels, guesthouses, and, unusually, resorts and inns situated in some of the city’s shrines. Despite being so popular amongst tourists, Bagan’s accommodation owners haven’t picked up the prices yet, so it remains relatively cheap to stay here.
