Client feedback from their recent holiday to Burma arranged by us:
You are my first email since arriving home! Wow what a trip. It was great! Thank you so much for the Lounge entry which made waiting at Heathrow a pleasure and a good start to the journey. Everything went so well. Lin, our guide, was BRILLIANT and very interesting. We didn't handle our cases, he was supportive and a real gentleman. I can't speak highly enough of him.
Thanks you so much for your help and advice. Best wishes and very kind regards...

About Burma
The colonial character and beauty of Yangon (
formely known as Rangoon) washes over you whilst the soaring pagodas on the banks of the mighty Ayeyarwady spread for miles in a dreamlike splendour. The cultural traditions of Mandalay, the unique leg rowers of Inle and miles of unspoilt beaches are just some of the other attractions of this gem of South East Asia.

Despite the the Burma Campaign's call for a ban on tourism, we believes that the ordinary people of Burma should not be isolated from the rest of the world. See our statement on tourism to Burma.

Issues surrounding tourism in Burma...

Should the people of Burma really be left to deal with a brutal military oppression alone?

Burma is ruled by one of the most brutal military dictatorships in the world; a dictatorship charged by the United Nations with a 'crime against humanity' for its systematic abuses of human rights, and condemned internationally for refusing to transfer power to the legally elected Government of the country.

The dictatorship censors all communication and has managed to hold onto an oppressive control for decades. The developed, democratic world watches from a far, in the hope of engaging with this beautiful country once democratic status is restored. In the meantime, the people of Burma have been left to deal with a brutal regime on their own, without support or kinship from the world. In our small way, we attempt to keep channels of communication open with the ordinary people of Burma and maintain what little contact we can.

The UK based 'Burma Campaign' called for ban tourism in 1996. It has had no impact on the military's stance but has managed to isolate the ordinary people by encouraging the world to look away.

If the bottom line of our reason for selling Burma were money, we would have wound up operations many years ago. Our selling of Burma stems from a sense of responsibility and because we feel, the people of Burma deserve our loyalty and need us to be their eyes, ears and voices.

Our tours do not use any military owned facilities, hotels, airlines, railways or agencies. We use small owner managed hotels, car hire companies and private guides. Furthermore, we do not take our guests to the pagodas, temples or bridges constructed by the military regime. In this way, we ensure that the vast majority of the money our clients spend goes directly into the hands of the local people.

A tiny percentage of the profits generated by our tours do end up in the military coffers by way of local taxes but we believe it is a small price to pay for ensuring the people of Burma are not isolated.

If we are to help lift the oppression of Burma's military government, it needs to be done from a position of strength and engagement and not by abstention.
