Bulethi - Review
An attraction with a difference! That’s how one would describe the unique place in Bagan which is called Bulethi. This place is just more than a temple site. Bulethi offers some incredible view of sunset. Moreover, you can also witness some out of the world experience. The site has hot air balloons and you can hop onto one and enjoy some breathtaking views around Bulethi. If you’re scared of heights then you can watch those balloons go up in the air and please your eyes. Some great photographs will make your trip memorable.

Bulethi, Bagan Reviews
Bulethi Pagoda is a very popular place to view the famous sunset drenching the many temples, stupas, and pagodas in a myriad of sunset colors in Bagan Myanmar. Some would say an ethereal experience. Our guide got us there an hour before sunset to access the best viewing perspective, which was ample time, however it fulls up fast and with people and their cameras and tripods who take their mission quite seriously. To access the best viewing spot, you have to climb a precariously steep, narrow step 3-tier set of brick laid stairs...NO HANDRAIL; hence potentially dangerous. Our guide said that someone slipped, fell and died 1 week prior; not sure if that was true or an attempt to heighten our awareness. But if you're in decent shape and are careful, the experience is worth it. Advisable to take a hat, sun block, and sun glasses protection while waiting for the sun to set. Before we climbed up the pagoda, we had an avocado smoothie from a vendor at the base of Bulethi Pagoda.
I think its Best place to enjoy sunrise with the baloon in Bagan. But need to be careful because the stairs are too high and small
Perfect place for sunset and sunrise but be aware that you will not have the idea to come to this temple at that time exclusively. Its very crowded which makes it not very romantic. However, make sure to be there at an early time and you will have a good position to enjoy the view
One of the best place to see sunrise and set. If you want to go there u need to go early.if u late no place for you.
Amazing views!! The only reason I wouldn’t give 5 stars is the crowd at sunset, which takes away from the overall experience.
