Where to go with your E-bikes in Bagan
You can always ask the shop owner where to go and they will explain you. I used the offline map Maps.me. You can set points where you want to go. So we figured out which places we wanted to see and pointed them on the map.
Another option is just go and do the loop of the two main streets from Nyaug U to Old Bagan. You’ll see a lot of temples and you can just go there 🙂
What did we do with our rented E-bikes in Bagan
We saw the sunset at one of the pagoda’s it is amazing! You can see the sun coming up and with the hot air balloons in Bagan makes it even more beautiful. After the sunrise we drove back for breakfast at 7.00. After breakfast we did the loop and saw different pagoda’s at 12.00 it started to be really hot so we went back to the hotel for a lunch and siesta. At 16.30 we get on the Ebike again to see sunset at one of the pagodas.
