Liddy Pleasants, from our supplier Stubborn Mule, travelled in Burma with her two young children. She shared her advice on a vacation in Burma with kids:
“Burma was amazing with children. The people are just so interested and delighted and hadn’t seen very many people traveling with children, so they were just unbelievably welcoming and bent over backwards every step of the way to help you, they’d give up their seats on the bus... often in restaurants we couldn’t communicate if they had no English menu, so they invited us into the kitchen so we could point to the different ingredients.
The other thing that’s really nice is that there’s lots of very different ways of doing sightseeing that work for children. So you can cycle round Bagan, take a boat around Inle Lake, take a horse drawn cart around the ruins near Mandalay, you cruise up the river to Mingun... so all the time you’re doing sightseeing which ticks the adult boxes, but in a fun way which makes the children happy as well.”
