The sunrise view from hot air balloon of thousands of temples spread in the Bagan valley is one of the most impressive views to enjoy. Bagan was the capital of the first Burma kingdom from the 9th to 13th centuries. It has the largest concentration of Buddhist temples and ruins in the world. At its highest point, the area had more than 10 thousand temples, of which less than 3 thousand remain today.
