Travelling in Myanmar with kids needn't be daunting if you book with a Divine family holiday where we focus on all things family.

Every little detail here will open young minds up wide - from the buzzing markets to the horse and cart rides, the long tail boats and the beautiful dress of the hill tribes.

Horse Cart Ride

Choose a horse cart as your chariot and be guided through deserted temples and rural plains before setting up for a delicious picnic lunch. In the afternoon, have a cat nap by the pool with leisure time to relax.

Long Tail Boat

Sail on a long tail boat around the spectacular Lake Inle. Children — and adults! — will be charmed with its floating markets and vegetable gardens, stilted villages and leg-rowing fishermen.

Hill Tribes

One of the most distinctive hill tribes from Shan State are the Pa’O, known for their navy blue clothes, colourful red or orange turbans, and their exceptionally good farm and trading skills.

Burmese markets are a whirlwind of colours, smells, tastes – and smiles. Kids can squeal at stinky dried fish, sample the crazy-looking fruits and marvel at the wonderful local dress of the hill-tribe people who come to trade in the towns.

Rescued Elephants

The elephant experience at Green Hill Valley for families is essentially a small family set-up fueled by a passion for caring for the elephants and creating a safe and sustainable environment for the elephants. It’s not as slick as similar places in Thailand, but it’s all the better for it as it’s far more authentic and not touristy at all. The 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.
