Thanks for your reply. I have been to Khurajaho in India and have a feeling it's somewhat the same as Bagan; so, since my time is so limited, I'm considering Mandalay. Have you been there? Is it worthwhile?

thanks for your reply. I have a feeling I will be repeating my experience in Khurajaho, India, and sine my itme is so limited, I'm really leaning toward Mandalay. Have you been there? Is it at all worthwhile?

Nope, Khajuraho is not like Bagan at all. Bagan is fabulous! I thought it might be like Siem Reap, but it had it's own flavor and the temples are fabulous. Unlike Khujaraho, you can go inside the temples--some have paintings, some don't. Very interesting and a must-do for SE Asia.

Mandalay is not worth your time--if you've spent time in India, it's a lot like Delhi...and less interesting IMO. Bago is not worth a day at all and we would have skipped it after looking at photos online, but only went as we were driving through it.
