The Most Beautiful Temples in Southeast Asia

Marvel at the region’s culture as through these sacred destinations.


This area in temples in Bagan is one of Southeast Asia’s most breathtaking man-made sights. The sheer number of these structures in the plains of this ancient city is astounding — imagine around 2,000 temples, pagodas and monasteries. One great (and faster) way to see these temples is via bicycle or electric motorbike. Take a few days to explore them all, for sunrise, noon or sunset.
