Myanmar Family Adventure

9 Days Easy

Our thrilling adventure begins in Yangon, its impressive colonial and spiritual heritage makes it one of the most fascinating cities in Southeast Asia. We visit the Shwedagon Pagoda, the Mahawizaya temple, the Bogyoke Market, Kandawgyi Park in central Yangon and lastly a sunset cruise on the Yangon River. Next we explore the gateway town to Inle Lake, Nyaung Shwe, by bike visiting the local market, temples and nunneries before cycling the scenic rural roads to the lake's eastern shores. We leave the bikes behind and take to the water by boat for a full day excursion on Inle Lake, stopping at villages, a monastery, a pagoda and at the village of Inpawkhone to observe the traditional silk weaving techniques of the Innthar people. An exciting trishaw ride through the streets of Nyaung Shwe takes us to the bustling canal to watch baskets laden with produce transferred from boats to trucks and bikes. Next on our agenda is Mt Popa, an extinct volcano standing 1518 metres high. Learn about nats and nat worship as you climb the stairs to the top (the climb is optional) with your local guide. The view over the Myingyan Plain from the top of the volcanic peak is impressive. Onto Bagan to discover its many temples and monasteries, including Kyan Sitthar Cave temple where we walk through the tunnel-like corridors by flashlight to view the fading paintings on the ceiling. We take an Irrawaddy river cruise to see the fabulous scenes of life on the water: fishermen, riverside villages and views of the Bagan temples. Lastly we visit Nyaung U Market, where amid the produce stalls are local toys and other handicrafts that the kids will enjoy. Our trip culminates with a flight to Yangon for your onward flight or further arrangements.
