With its colorful cities, spectacular temples and tranquil places of refuge, Myanmar offers contrasts galore. These many facets complement each other perfectly, making the country – the largest in mainland Southeast Asia – ideal for exploration as a family unit.
The action inevitably kicks off in Yangon, the former capital, still by far the nation’s biggest city and its international gateway. Points of interest here include the city’s well-preserved colonial architecture and its spiritual centerpiece, the stunning Shwedagon Pagoda. Other kid-friendly attractions include a sunset cruise on the Yangon River and the chance to sample some local confectionary.
From Yangon, the journey proceeds to beautiful Inle Lake, where the placid waters are home to the local Intha minority, who live in stilt-houses built on the lake. The journey concludes at Bagan where ancient temples rub shoulders with other attractions such as beautiful Mount Popa.
