All About this Tour

After five decades of complete seclusion, Burma (also known as Myanmar) is new to the world’s stage as a tourist destination. A culturally rich country, there is much still unexplored by the average tourist, making this Burma tour ideally designed to excite the adventurous. The unspoiled hill tribe villages, peaceful colonial towns, and bustling cities do share one thing in common though; they’re home to a nation of friendly, welcoming people.
