    The bat picture is amazing.

    Your pictures show almost no other tourists. Is Bagan fairly empty or is it because of your masterful photography?

      The bat passage was amazing. I took 2 pictures into the dark and that one came up. The bats were everywhere, flying literally inches from my face the whole time I was in there. I gained a newfound respect for their echo-location skills, it was amazing that not a single one touched me.

      It’s currently the “rainy season” in Myanmar so there aren’t many tourists in the entire country. Even during busy season, between November and February, I imagine it’s not too crowded – Myanmar isn’t exactly a convenient place to visit.

      Misanthropy, not masterful photography, results in the lack of people in these photos.
