Family Myanmar

Nestled in Southeast Asia, Myanmar (formerly Burma) is a treasure trove of beautiful nature, vibrant culture and ancient history. From the charming city of Yangon, with its bustling markets and pretty parks, to the temple strewn landscapes of Bagan, set off on a journey of cultural discovery on your Myanmar family holiday.

At Original Travel we know what it takes to plan a truly epic family holiday. Leave it to our team of Asia experts to craft you a tailor-made itinerary to appeal to the whole family while we'll arm you with all the extras from our activity-filled Sharky & George packs - perfect for long travelling days - to our clued-up Concierges who are on-hand for recommendations and any last-minute itinerary changes.

The starting point for most holidays to Myanmar is the country's largest city, Yangon. Besides its many wonderful restaurants, bars and shops, the real highlight here is the magnificent golden Buddhist monument of Shwedagon Paya where we can arrange for the whole family to take part in a robe offering ceremony with some of the temple monks. Elsewhere in the city, there is a huge open-air market and a scattering of lovely parks and lakes.

The fun doesn't end in Yangon either. Hop aboard a boat or kayak to explore the twisting waterways of Inle Lake, fill your little ones with culture while exploring the temples of Bagan, and enjoy some beach time at the paradise-like Ngapali Beach. And, if you've got the time, don't miss the chance to step aboard a luxurious river boat for an unforgettable cruise along the Irrawaddy river - the perfect start or end to your Myanmar family holiday.
