Myanmar with children (family / kids)


You can easily travel with children in Myanmar. It is a very safe country and people are very child friendly. Myanmar offers plenty of culture, temples, monastries, which can be a little too much for the children. But if you balance your program in the right way, with other activities as well, it's a fascinating country, also for children. You can bike the temples, you can arrange an horse cart and you can do a train ride.

Myanmar is 5½ hours (in winter 6½ hours ahead of Central Europe Time. Don’t plan too much during the first 2 days because of the jetlag and choose hotels with a pool. It’s nice if the children can have a swim at the end of the day!
