Through The Sandbox Lens #1 — Aerial View of Ancient Bagan, Myanmar

Posted by on May 10, 2010 in Myanmar Sandbox, Sandbox Photography, Through the Sandbox Lens, Uncategorized | 2 comments

Today begins a new feature here at Budget Travelers Sandbox….”Through the Sandbox Lens”. I have literally thousands of travel shots sitting in my archives that I want to publish. Starting today, and at least three times a week, I will be publishing a travel photo here. Along with the photo I will include whatever information I have about the site including location, history, how to get there, etc. Enjoy the show!

The ancient temples of Bagan, Myanmar from a hot air balloon. Hot air balloon rides are available from Balloons Over Bagan. They also have a page on Facebook. This adventure was definitely a splurge, but one that was well worth it. I planned ahead and had the money saved and earmarked for hot air ballooning in Myanmar. The ride was magical.
