Bagan has an older area where almost all of the city's temples are located, most of which date from the 11th and 12th centuries. A few years ago the government decided to move the inhabitants of this "city monument" and create a new population further south called New Bagan. All the roads are made of dirt Old Bagan and it's flat without any hills, which allows you to take lovely photos, especially if the weather permits, of hte more than 4000 temples located at different distances. There are several ways to get around old Bagan. Burmese Tourists buses have organized packages consisting of foreign tourists in vans with local guides.
