This is the view I have seen nearly every day until 1993. I used to live in Nyaung Oo (Bagan) until I passed the high school. Everyone said Bagan's scenery is amazing but I didn't realize it when I was there.
When I went back there for the first time in a decade, I realized that that is the most beautiful place... but changed quite a lot. We should keep ruins as it is. Otherwise it wont be an ancient city that people valued.
