THE UNDISCOVERED

WITH US

More Relevant. More Personal. More Myanmar
Myanmar - A most spiritual land of ancient sun-burnt plains, grand rivers, rolling hills, and deserted beaches. A country steeped in centuries of tradition. Filled with ethnic diversity and many people living as they have done for centuries, Myanmar is brimming with hospitable and charming personalities. Once known as Burma, and closed off from the world for the past half-century or so, there are still no tourist crowds. Myanmar is surely a unique destination. A place filled with culture, beauty, history and most importantly, heartfelt welcomes.
