Bagan – Colorful Ox Carts

When visiting Bagan you will notice there are several options for getting in and around town.  These options include taxi, bicycles, E-bikes (electric bikes), shared pickup (like Thailand’s Song Tow), early morning hot air balloons and then you have horse carriage and ox carts (which can be rented by half and full day).


Something interesting we noticed, in late afternoons the ox and their carts take on a different look – their head and body harnesses are switched out with bright colored ones that are laced with fresh flowers.  The carts are also decorated with fresh flowers and bright red flags.


I’m not sure how this tradition came about but this form of transportation is very popular for the late afternoon crowd coming in to view the famous evening sunsets.

Ok Dad…  I think its time for you to get caught up on all the latest cow fashions!  If its ok for ox’s to get spiffied up for a night on the town here then I think its ok for the cows back home!

Hopefully by now you realize that cows have needs to, right?!  :^)
