Things to do at Maung Shwe Lay beach, Myanmar with family

Khiri Travel Myanmar offers a day trip to a village at the beach that is suitable for families with children. Travel by local fishing boat about one and half hours south of Ngapali Beach to a traditional village called Maung Shwe Lay. Located on the beautiful and quiet St. Andrew’s Bay, Maung Shwe Lay is a small community of fishermen. Families with children enjoy a village tour to the market and village school including an oxcart ride back to the beach for some snorkeling and swimming fun. Lunch is fresh seafood cooked at a local house right on the beach.

things to do with children in Ancient temple, Bagan, Myanmar

Here is how Khiri Travel can make Bagan’s overwhelming number of ancient temples interesting for children: a tour that highlights this vast kingdom’s stories of ghosts, superstitious kings, brutal conquerors and other scary stories. During this half-day tour, our guide will entertain young and old alike with some hair rising myths and anecdotes. Is the spirit of the Tharaba gate really the soul of a person buried alive inside the doorpost? How many construction workers had their arm chopped of at the stone at Dhammayangyi’s stupa? Reciting oral legends, the tour guide will entertain travelers with stories about the scandalous behavior of kings and queens during this period.

Apart from the high season, from October to February, the best time to visit the beaches of Myanmar is from March to May, when the otherwise busy hotel staff will give your family full attention in a less busy period. Likewise, the slower months of July and August are perfect for trips to upcountry Myanmar (eg. Bagan), when room rates are lower and more economical for a family budget.

For more information about things to do in Maung Shwe Lay Village and Ngapali Beach, and about resorts in Rakhine State, Bagan’s Dhammayangyi temple and the high and low season in Myanmar, please contact [email protected].
