Responsible Travel in Myanmar

Our passion for responsible travel means that, when you visit Myanmar, you’ll experience far more than just a holiday. You’ll meet new people, learn about the culture, stay in some memorable places, and support local communities along the way.

You’ll come home with life-long memories, while also knowing that the people and places you’ve visited benefit too. With Myanmar’s political past, it is more important than to travel responsibly. Myanmar has recently been opened up to tourists, after decades of dictatorship and isolation, and we are proud to support the growth of this emerging destination and its small communities.

Our trips

Throughout our trips, we like to include rewarding experiences that make good things happen for you and the places you visit. For example, in Hsipaw, you can meet the local Palaung community as you trek through the mountainous landscapes. Take the train, mingle with the locals and learn about the art of bamboo weaving.

Our accommodation

Where you rest your head at night is just as important as the places you visit during the day. We hand-pick small-scale accommodation in Myanmar that’s packed full of local flavour and charm. From village lodges to cosy bed and breakfasts, take a look at our accommodation options.
