Traveling to Burma with 15 month old

Jump to last reply

I am in the initial planning stages of a trip to Burma in January. I will be traveling with my husband and 15 month old son. I have been doing some research and have contacted Santa Maria Tours today to begin planning. We have 10 - 12 days to spend in the country and want to see Yangoon, Mandalay, Bagan and Inle Lake. I would like to get some advice on what we should include that would be of interest to our son. We won't be able to include long driving days or treks. He will like horse cart tours, jumping cat monastery, the cat house near Inle, and there will be enough to see at temples and markets to keep him occupied. I have also read about a snake temple near Mandalay where the monks wash the snakes daily. Is there anywhere we can visit elephants? Has anyone done local family visits or visited a school? Has anyone been to Burma with a small child?

To give a bit more background, our trip will be three weeks in total. We will spend a few days in Bangkok before or after Burma and a week in Japan visiting friends on the way home. This will be our fourth international trip with our son, so we are getting pretty good with handling the logistics of traveling with an infant.

Any advice you can give is appreciated. Thanks!
