Bagan Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort
Why we like it
- Situated on the banks of the legendary Irrawaddy River
- Suites have huge stone bath tubs so you can soak while enjoying river views
- Centrally located in the heart of old Bagan
- The resort's restaurant is known for it's fresh, innovative cuisine
- A short walk to the Museum of Baga's history
The Fruit Shakes served at the Hotel's bar are all locally grown and in season, blended and created in front you. Papya and Mango were our personal favourites, a nice refresher after a day exploring Bagan's mysterious temples.
I would also like to make special mention of Thida Win - she is an absolutely wonderful guide - very kind, patient, knowledgeable and a consummate professional in undertaking her job. She made sure that everything happened seamlessly without any hitches whatsoever - she is a great advert for A&K and for Myanmar.
Bagan Thiripyistaya Sanctuary Resort is situtated on the banks of the Irrawaddy, Burma's river of history and legend.

Best time to be thereMyanmar (Burma) has three clear seasons: from March to May are the very hot summer months, the wet and humid monsoon runs from May to October and the cold dry winter lasts from November to February. The best time of year to visit is late November early December when the rains have gone, the landscape is lush and green and the skies are crystal clear. However any time from late November to March is a good time to travel.
