Nyaung U and Wet Kyi Inn

These are really Bagan's most budget-orientated areas to stay. Nyaung U is also the area furthest from the monuments but remains our pick of the areas to stay, both due to the variety of local food found in the surrounds and the more reasonable prices. Wet Kyi Inn is roughly half way between Nyaung U and Old Bagan, so is closer to the monuments but a very long walk (or a 10 minute bicycle ride) from the restaurants in Nyaung U.

New Bagan

New Bagan was once Old Bagan, till the junta kicked the villagers out on their collective backsides to this dusty set of crossroads south of the major monuments that became New Bagan. Accommodation is a very mixed bag, attracting tour groups more than anything else. The accommodation generally is poor value, though at least rates are not as inflated as in Old Bagan.

Old Bagan

This is Bagan's luxury quarter, where you're permitted the privilege of paying through the nose for some of the most overpriced hotel accommodation we've seen in some time. Still, if you want to be right among the ruins, this is as close as you can get.
