Responsible tourism: Highlights of Myanmar tour


When we choose accommodations in Myanmar, or any of our destinations, we speak with every General Manager to understand their mission to the environment and ensure there is synergy with our goals and strategy. This particular vacation offers a boutique range of accommodation, with nearly all hotels having their own sustainable policy.

The vehicles used on this trip for transportation are all new models within the last 4 years, which conserve much more energy than older cars/vans. In addition to this, we recommend two great options in Bagan where you can venture out on horse and cart or explore the temples via bike instead of vehicle.

As our client, you have the option to offset your carbon commissions from this vacation. Just let your Fair Travel Specialist know and we will match you 50/50.

Myanmar is a destination where its tourist industry is still in its infancy. It is essential that best practice and fair wages create a strong bond between tourism and the tangible benefits it brings to the local community. Our fair trade ethos ensures that you have the best guides who recieve great training, wages and who are in no way reliant on tipping.

All hotels on this trip are locally run with no big name chains, so you know you are getting a local experience as well as supporting the local economy.

We always engage with the local communities, either by stopping for a pot of tea at a homestay or visiting many of the local handicraft shops. For example, in Bagan we visit a family-run Toddy Shop to observe the process of making the rich and caramel-like toddy candies from the sap of the toddy palms, as well as visiting the Flat Mango Village, home to Danu families, an ethnic group of the Shan people. Your day is spent meeting the villagers and learning more about their typical rural life which helps to support them as well as enrich the cultural experience for you.
