Cycling Around Bagan

For anyone who loves a bit of exploring abandoned structures, I highly recommend Bagan, Myanmar.  The top sights are well maintained, require a ticket for entry, and deliver the experiences as promised in guidebooks.

Sprinkled around the 25 sq km zone containing these marked sights are an endless array of secondary temples/stupas/payas, many of which contain buddha statues and images.  Some have narrow staircases offering roof access, others sport more vegetation than sound bricks, but most are completely unattended.  I spent a full day exploring perhaps 60 or 80 of them -- and there are thousands.
