The night sky above Yangon is set a deep navy. It is in the dying hours of the day that it is best to see the towering jewel found in the heart of the city, the Shwedagon Paya. The foundations of this Buddhist temple date back over 2500 years, originally standing around 8 metres tall. Over many centuries the temple was continually built upon and now stands at nearly 110 metres tall, covered in hundreds of solid gold plates and around 4,000 diamonds and jewels. At night, Shwedagon Paya is illuminated, acting as a spectacular golden beacon that can be seen from across the city.

From early morning on November 1st, the cemeteries of Santiago Sacatepéquez and Sumpango in Guatemala are hives of activity. Families are busy cleaning and tidying the graves of their departed loved ones and setting up areas for the annual ‘Day of the Dead’ grave-side picnic. A testament to the sheer variety and vibrancy of Guatemalan culture, it’s an unforgettable experience. While it may sound a bit macabre, the atmosphere is buoyant yet respectful. Everybody takes advantage of this opportunity to remember those that have passed away in a positive, uplifting way.

Family Travel In China
China
Family
China may not be the first place you think of for a family holiday - but for children, it can be an exciting, fun place. What's more, as Chinese influence and economic power increases, exposure to the country can only be a good thing! The classic sites which will appeal to Mum and Dad such as the Great Wall and Terracotta Warriors are all very much family friendly. Depending on the ages of your children, other fun activities can also be included in a trip to China - such as learning how to make a traditional kite (kites were invented in China); cycling around pretty Chinese countryside; visiting a Chinese puppet show.
