Between January 2023 and the third week of December 2023, over 5,500 tourists from 57 countries explored the Bagan ancient cultural zone, as reported by U Kyaw Myo Win, Director of the Department of Archaeology and National Museum (Bagan Branch).
Thailand led the list of visiting tourists during this period, with more than 2,300, followed by Russia with over 400, and Vietnam securing the third-largest number, as stated by the director.
Domestic travellers frequently visit Bagan throughout the year, not just during the tourist season, and their numbers surge on public holidays, according to reports.
The well-preserved ancient cultural heritages of Bagan, including pagodas, temples, religious structures, and palace walls, continue to captivate both domestic and international tourists due to their historical significance and remarkable state of preservation. — ASH/TKO
