Wonder Bagan website is the very first official region specialized tourism website created by JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) Project collaborated with MoHT (Ministry of Hotels and Tourism). It was opened to the public since September 2015 with English and Japanese languages. Wonder Bagan website provides general information about Bagan and surroundings, and also comprehensive tourism-related information including sustainable and responsible tourism.
Now our website has been redeveloped and will contribute updated news about Bagan and its surrounding.We plan to add information in Myanmar language and other languages as well. Bagan Tourism Development Supporters (BTDS), which is formed of natives to Bagan, will update news about Bagan on the Wonder Bagan website, as well as the Wonder Bagan Facebook and Instagram pages. We aim to become the most reliable and attractive site for information about Bagan’s tourism.
