NYAUNG-U: Mya Thida Hotel

This is one of, if not, the cheapest accommodation you would find on Agoda for Bagan. Having said that, you would think that it would be a bad choice, but the photos circulating online do not do the place any justice. Even if the place looks a bit old fashioned, I enjoyed my stay here because a) it is cheap; b) the people here are sooooo accommodating; and c) the place is just fine. The only problem you would be having here is the Internet connection. The signal reaches the rooms, but the connection itself is really slow, but if you resign yourself to the fact that this is Myanmar and that is just how fast the Internet is supposed to be, then you would not be spending too much time stressing yourself over it. The room could use more lighting.

The shuttle van is for hire at 45,000 kyat a day with free driver and tour guide. This is a better option because biking around Bagan at this time of the year is synonymous to having a death wish. The dorm room is okay, carpeted, 24 hour aircon, large en suite bathroom, and a metal box for you to put your important stuff in. Daily breakfast, a mix of local bread and what have you, is included. The location in New Bagan is a bit far from Nyaung U if coming by bus from either Yangon or Mandalay, but is quite near to Old Bagan where most of the temples are.
