A Trip to Bagan #10 (Bagan Tower)

 After having late lunch, I was heading to Bagan Tower which is quite far from Bagan Old Town. It took me more than 30 minutes bicycle ride to reach there. 

 I chose the shortcut which is along the farmland, great scenery and lifestyle of villagers but the road is very bad. In some places, I had to dismount and push the bicycle because it was impossible to ride on sand road. 

I could see the tower clearly from here but It is still some distance away.  I almost gave up and returned to hotel half way because I was too exhausted and dehydrated.

There is a beautiful garden below the tower with animal statues such as elephants, deers etc.

Entrance fee to the tower is 2000 kyats for local (include welcome drink). I couldn't wait to drink a glass of water. However, the welcome drink (juice) made me more thirsty. So I had to buy water bottle at the Tower's restaurant even though I knew it would be very expensive. As expected 1 bottle 1000 kyats (outside price was only 250 kyats at that time).

This is the 5 stars hotel beside the tower. It must be very expensive and I am not sure tourists will choose to stay there or not may be only the rich one. 

This is the best sunset photo I get from that evening. It is not that impressive.

After sunset, the staff showed me what are the facilities available inside the tower. This is the meeting room.

This is the seminar room.

Impressive sculpture of elephant and the king.

After visiting the tower, I had to take long journey to return to the hotel because I used the main road instead of shortcut.

 I thought I was going to reach the hotel ,however, I remembered this gateway is still far from the hotel. :(
