Perfect Itinerary For Your Vacation To Myanmar With Kids

“Min-Ga-Lar-Ba”!!! Greeting from Golden Yellow Travel.

Shall we start our news and traveling information in asking about a question like “Is safe to travel Myanmar”? So, to be honest in answering, yes, it is definitely safe to travel to all Myanmar main destinations like Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, Kalaw, Inle Lake, Ngapali Beach. It is one of the perfect destinations for a family vacation for Myanmar. And 10 days is really enough to cover all destination and yes, your last stop for Myanmar with Ngapali Beach.

Warmaly Welcome To You & Your Family From Myanmar

There are two types of traveling to Myanmar for you. One is you can contact your family vacation with travel agents through Myanmar. And 2nd option is accommodation arrangement is by yourself and for the transportation & activities by travel agents or you can book these through Viator and Expedia. And Of course, we “Golden Yellow Travel” also offering day tours and activities with the best price.

Let’s check your family itinerary;


Shwedagon Pagoda | Yangon | Myanmar.

Known as Rangoon during colonial times, the former capital is often the starting point of your itinerary. While it may not be overly popular with the little ones, a quick visit to the famous Shwedagon Pagoda. And the National Museum is the one you shouldn’t skip. One excursion that families love is riding Yangon’s Circular Railway. This local commuter rail network circles the city and its suburbs and is a great way to see a cross-section of daily life in Yangon. You will see the life on the train, people buying and selling, you see the scenery go by first it’s a city and suddenly you’re staring at vegetable gardens!

Where to stay in Yangon? We recommend three hotels with three categories. These are;

1/ Governor Residence

2/ Savoy Hotel

3/ Strand Hotel

Why we chose these three hotels?

We are regarding the learning of our friend’s “customers”, their need for accommodation. These three hotels have interconnecting rooms and a good-sized pool, and boutique hotels in the city so better for families who tend to spend their leisure time at hotel’s pool with their lovely children after the sightseeing!


Sunrise View Of Bagan | Nyaung U | Myanmar.

With over 2,000 temples and pagodas dotting the countryside, Bagan is one of Myanmar’s most iconic sites. A fun way to tour this magical region is by horse-cart riding, feel like local families from 15 years ago. Mini treasure hunts around the local markets are also a big hit, and kids are tasked with picking out local foods and items from a shopping list and then learning about each one. Enjoy a lunchtime picnic set amidst the pagodas, where children can run in an around the temples without having to necessarily ‘visit’ each one. A sunset cruise down the Ayeyarwaddy River is also a must, but make sure to stop along the way so the kids can take up a game of soccer or dodgeball with the local children – a surefire way to keep their interest peaked while parents enjoy the beautiful scenery. Finally, enjoy your peaceful moment at the Ayeyarwaddy river. If you will luck, you can even see the Ayeyarwaddy Dolphin.

“There is one extra activity information for you as Ballooning Over Bagan for your sunrise time feel like a bird.”

Where to stay in Bagan?

1/ Bagan Lodge Hotel

2/ Aureum Palace Hotel

3/ Bagan Thande Hotel

Villas are spacious and the infinity pool overlooks the temples, so that it feels as if you’re actually swimming out to them – something that is sure to delight both parents and kids!

Where to reserve your balloon ticket?

Oriental Ballooning which is one of our hand-pick flight company for balloon riding. All the pilots are over 15 years of experiences in ballooning and they care a lot to their customers even this is your first-time experience in enjoying. You can check more about “Oriental Ballooning Company”.

We are strongly recommending for flight cost and safety. We have the best relationship with them for our friends throughout the world.


Green Hill valley Elephant Camp | Kalaw | Myanmar.

It is like a one of best gateway to the best trekking trails in the country, Kalaw started as a backcountry hill station during British colonial times, and is set over 1,000m above sea level enjoying much welcomed cooler temperatures. You will get a best weather when you are at there. The question is why it get so nice weather? Because it is set over 1000, above sea level and you have to enjoy a Pine Forest. While there, Light-foot highly recommends the elephant experience for families at Green Hill Valley, essentially a small family set-up fueled by a passion for caring for the elephants and creating a safe and sustainable environment for them. It is a good place for a family who like to hide from tourist crowded area. It is far more authentic and not touristy at all. More than seven elephants are all rescued, and guests can see the ledgers which tell you about their history, ailments and treatments, which is really educational for the kids. The elephants can be ridden bareback (safe and comfortable for the animals), and guests are able to get into the river to help wash them – prepare to get very wet! Wrap your day up with tree planting, which will help to ensure these gentle creatures have a better home in the future.

Where to stay in Kalaw?

1/ Amara Mountain Resort

2/ Kalaw Hill Lodge

3/ Kalaw Heritage Hotel

A charming colonial residence originally built in 1900~1920; There are plenty of space for kids to run around, and is set in an area renowned for walking and trekking.


Inle Lake | Southern Shan State | Myanmar.

Inle Lake is located in central Myanmar, It is surrounded by hills and ringed by quaint villages and giant banyan trees. There are about 25 different villages on the lake itself, and kid’s love travelling around from village to village in the small boats as well as the picnics that can be enjoyed onboard. Fishermen on the lake have developed a unique style of leg rowing that evolved from them not being able to see over the tall reeds while sitting down, so instead they stand on their boats and use one leg to control the oar – another facet that children find fascinating. Around the lake there are interactive ‘cooking classes’ where families can learn to make a meal in a local home. Lastly, the Inle Heritage Burmese Cat House, a structure built in the traditional style of the lake, also scores big points. With the goal of reintroducing the near-extinct Burmese cat back into the country, kids can pet and interact with the cats in the house – very cute!

Where to stay in Inle Lake?

1/ Inle Heritage Hotel

2/ Aureum Palace Hotel

3/ Novotel Inle Lake

Inle Heritage – It is at the middle of the Inle Lake. And it is features a pool and the Burmese-cats are funs for the children. You can also catch a sunrise at the middle of Lake by boat. And morning exploring around village is a good one for you to learn what the villagers “Inthar” start their days.

Aureum Palace Hotel – We recommend the room for 1st row villa because of you can get a full view of Inle Lake with the mountain background. And you will also have the one good breakfast, they will serve you.

Novotel Inle Lake – It is good one who love to enjoy their accommodation with a modern design and a bit less stuffy than some of the others. And very good sunset views to spend with your family. While it is very un-Inle in terms of design, the more traditional resorts just don’t have the extra space for children or the added benefit of the pool.


Ngapali Beach | Myanmar.

Located on Myanmar southwest coast, Ngapali Beach is the most well-known spot in the area, despite it still being largely off-the-beaten-track. A large beach with swimmable waters, it’s a great place to spend a few days at the end of a trip through the country. A wonderfully peaceful area, relax by the beach, cycle along the shore or spend a day exploring the region’s fishing villages by boat.

Where to stay in Ngapali Beach?

1/ Bay View – The Beach Resort

2/ Hilton Hotel Ngapali Beach

3/ Yoma Cherry Lodge

These hotels are with spacious beachfront rooms, and these are the good hotel to accommodate with your family. And these are also our hand pick collection for Ngapali beach and got a good review from our friends.
