With endless color and a cultural framework that is one of the region’s richest, Myanmar is the ideal choice for a family holiday with imagination. Sealed off from the rest of the world for decades, the country has opened up to stake its claim as a tourist draw to be reckoned with.
Modern trappings such as restaurants and high-rises may now be encroaching, but years of isolation have served to conserve precious elements of Burmese culture. In the former capital Yangon sights such as the amazing Shwedagon Pagoda are not to be missed while neighborhoods like Little India and Chinatown buzz with vital energy. Outwith the big city things are equally compelling.
Tranquil Inle Lake is a highlight of the country. Lesser-known yet equally captivating experiences, meanwhile, are treks in the highlands of Shan Province and meditation sessions near the legendary city of Mandalay.
