Hire an electric scooter for a day or week and meander between the temples. Early morning and late afternoons are a treat. Stay in the Old Town, not new Town (no atmosphere). Lovely restaurants in Old Town as well, do go!

Breathtaking views of the Pagodas and Temples. Beginning of September 2017, visitors won't be able to climb the Pagodas and Temples.... There will be a little man made hill from you were be able to take a general view.

This is one of the most magical places we've visited. Stupas, temples and monasteries everywhere you turn, dating from the 11th to 13th centuries and some still in use today. If you're the adventurous type be sure to rent electric scooters and explore the back,...More

Because of Philippines passport holder, you have 14 days visa free to visit Myanmar. September is also good time to visit Bagan neither too hot nor cold. And also you can get cheap price for hotel rooms.
