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.

There are so many great places to visit in Myanmar with kids and I just wanted to see everything the country has to offer.
Inle Lake was a surprising highlight on our visit to Myanmar. I had been to Ton Le Sap near Siem Reap in Cambodia and thought it would be similar at that. However there is more to Inle Lake than the obvious long boat tour, here’s my list of things to do on Inle Lake with kids.
