I am David Sing from Design Travel. Thank you for your email.

Pl let me know if the following brief itinerary is OK with you:

Climb up pagodas to see sunset over the Irrawaddy River or vast acres of stupas and pagodas. That is the best way to see Bagan with the family. We can also provide a car.
Mar 31, 2013    Bagan to Mount Popa by car in the afternoon. Wooden chalet hotel in Mount Popa - a very peaceful retreat popular with European tourists. Mount Popa is said to be the "Mount Olympus" of Myanmar and your children may later remember and be fascinated by the climb up the "mountain of the Myanmar gods or spirits"..

April 1, 2013     See sunrise over Mount Popa in the morning and have a leisurely breakfast with the family. Climb up to the top of Mount Popa if the family is able to do so.

Back to Bagan by car.  Explore more Bagan's history by walking. Or a boat cruise on the Irrawaddy River. Or a balloon trip. Let me know if you have specific temples or pagodas you will like to visi .   Hotel in Bagan.

April 2, 2013     Bagan to Mandalay in the morning by plane. City tour of Mandalay palaces, go up the famous Hill overlooking Mandalay city and surroundings.. Hotel in Mandalay.

April 3, 2013     Mandalay to Heho Airport to Inle the morning  Hotel in Inle Lake. Boat tours to villages and surroundings. Floating farms and fishermen are the more common scenes you will see.

April 4, 2013     Inle Lake and Indein Lake with boat tours and visits to the villages. Short trekking to the farms, see wild flowers and spiders and meet the villagers with your family. Very interesting if your family appreciate agriculture, farm people and nature. Sunset is said to be the most beautiful in Inle Lake.    Hotel in Inle Lake. You need at least two days are the minimum to appreciate Inle Lake area.

April 5, 2013     Inle to Yangon in the morning by plane..  View Yangon's colonial buildings and market, Chinatown, Little India on your own.  Hotel in Yangon.

April 6, 2013    Yangon to Singapore.

The cost depends on how many places you want to visit and the quality of the hotel (3-star hotel will be less expensive in view of the tourism boom and full occupancy and higher rates of 4- and 5-star hotels).

Station guides speaking English and transport and breakfast will be provided.. If the above itinerary is OK, pl let me know and I will get the quotation and the full itinerary for you. If you want to change the itinerary, please write a new one for me as you may wish to see more places like "Golden Rock".  There may not be much time to see too many places.
