Bagan Family Treasure Hunt - Full Day
This morning the Bagan treasure hunt starts at 08:00.
Meet up with the guide for a safety briefing about the e-bikes and give the zippy electric scooters a test run on a quiet, flat road to get accustomed to the day’s vehicle. Once you feel comfortable it is time to invite your child to jump on the back of the e-bike and let the treasure hunt begin. Make sure that smart phones are fully charged to make use of the offline map the guide recommended to download using the hotel’s Wi-Fi the day before.
The aim of the game is to work together using the map and easy GPS coordinates to find the Lost Letters that will lead to clues about the whereabouts of the next destination. Combining all the letters will spell out the Winning Word which eventually leads the team to the final stop where prizes for all the family will be waiting. There is a total of 12 destinations throughout the treasure hunt, including Bagan’s most famous temples, a riverside garden, local villages and an artist’s workshop.
To keep energized during the adventure enjoy a delicious local lunch at one of Bagan’s best vegetarian restaurants with a beautiful setting by the temples. There will also be drink stops at a village and riverside garden in the morning to help keep cool.
Along the way the knowledgeable guide can explain all about Bagan’s history at each of the stops to make this not only a fun adventure for the children but also a great learning activity. The children are in charge of the routing but the guide can provide a few tips whenever necessary to set the family on the right course. Don’t expect too much help though!
The excitements ends at 15:00, depending on how quickly the family works out the clues and the locations of all the stops.
