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.
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.
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.
Our local project in Myanmar
Across all of our destinations, we like to support a local project to give something back. In Myanmar, we’re proud supporters of HEAL Kids, a foundation supporting various projects throughout Myanmar from funding life-changing operations to running feeding programmes for orphans and schooling disadvantaged children.

Our local partners
We work with a local partner in Myanmar who shares our passion for making good things happen through travel. Our product manager frequently discusses responsible travel and sustainability with our Burmese partners, and we’re always looking for ways to improve. We also use local guides and drivers for all of our excursions, so you’ll have the advantage of your guide’s local knowledge, while also supporting local people.
