Aye Yar River View Resort

Location: Bagan | Burma

With a prime location right on the banks of the mighty Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwaddy) River and in the heart of Old Bagan, the Aye Yar River View Resort echoes the traditional Burmese style, with four hectares of tropical garden encasing the resort, and a crumbling, atmospheric stupa within its stunning grounds.
