Travel to Burma, now officially known as Myanmar, offers great historical value, rich cultural heritage, and insight to a unique daily life style. It also possesses a vast ecological diversity ranging from Himalayan peaks to tropical beaches. Expect only the friendliest and most courteous treatment from your JOURNEYS travel guides and drivers. Burma is making new strides toward democratization. You can expect a new spirit of inquiry, open discussion of political ideas and an appreciation for Americans who have encouraged political reform. Don't expect to be shocked, depressed or saddened. Share your ideas about freedom, democracy, and society. Take away a sense of a beautiful, serene, people preserving their culture and dignity in a society tied to a long tradition of autocratic domination. We have been working with the same local representative and individual guides since 1987. Everyone who travels in Burma wishes their tour would last longer! Ask about new areas for hiking and nature experiences.
