Is it Burma or Myanmar? A lot of people ask this question, closely followed by “when did Burma become Myanmar?”. I can tell you that the Military Junta of the time changed the name in 1989 but both names are widely used both there and abroad. Our 2 week Myanmar family vacation was fantastic yet challenging at the same time. There are so many great places to visit in Myanmar with kids and I just wanted to see everything the country has to offer.
Visiting the Bagan temples was the highlight of our trip to Myanmar. I had seen many photos of Bagan and while I knew what to expect, I didn’t expect Bagan to take my breath away. It gave me the same tingles as when I first sighted Angkor Wat. I wasn’t surprised that the kids loved Bagan as well. Here’s our top things to do in Bagan with kids.
