The Best Sunset in Myanmar

Bagan, Myanmar. Lonely Planet suggests ending your day in Bagan with a sunset cruise on the Irewaddy, but we remain unconvinced. Why pay $17 for a seat in an aging boat when a superior (and free) view can be had from the roof of a temple. We’re sure that the sunset views from the river are wonderful, but sunsets are wonderful from any river anywhere in the world. Even Phnom Phen, possibly the most depressing city in the world, has great sunset cruises on the Mekong. Instead of the boat cruise, save the $17 and watch the sunset from the roof of a temple - or spend your $17 on a bottle of wine at the Aureum Palace pool - pictured below.
