Myanmar (Burma)

Why are we still promoting Myanmar as a destination?

Myanmar is one of the most diverse, colourful and incredible destinations in the world, with a staggering 135 different ethnic groups. Outside of Rakhine State, it is also considered a safe country to visit.

However, the on-going persecution of the Rohingya in Rakhine State has raised serious questions as to whether it is ethically responsible to travel to the country.

We are appalled at the human tragedy seen in Rakhine state but we also know that boycotting the country has a negative impact on the lives of so many people in Myanmar. We feel that engagement through responsible small-scale tourism is a much more effective way to try and enact positive change and that is why we continue to send customers to Myanmar. 

If you have any concerns, or if you would like more information, please talk to us.
