Burma Family Adventure
You could wait in long lines at a theme park with multitudes of other hot, cranky families – or you could take your brood on an actual adventure to Burma (also known as Myanmar).

Add in some biking and hiking in order to visit different areas and you’ve got the perfect avenue to immerse your family in a dynamic new – yet old – culture.
