Woah… This photo is just beautiful! Makes you want to visit this strange exotic land of Myanmar (aka Burma). Bagan, Myanmar is one of the main tourist hotspots. More than 10,000 Buddhist temples were built in Bagan between the 11th and 13th centuries. Many were damaged from earthquakes and erosion, but more than 2200 remain today. The balloon rides will cost you US$300 per person. But for the beautiful views & photo op, I would love to visit these ancient structures someday…
