Myanmar offers a wealth of scenic beauty, ancient religious monuments, bustling cities and fascinating festivals. A country rich in history and Buddhist tradition, it is also filled with warm, friendly people from an amazing variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
Most of all The Real Myanmar feels obliged in the country of Myanmar / Burma and its people. We are trying to promote sustainable tourism. May this kind of tourism will benefit mostly for private companies and young companies. Most of the local tour operators offer package tours which include hotel accommodation, local guide, entry fees, flight, private car, flight etc. These offers are more secure, but also more expensive.
Individual travel with private car & accommodation basically becomes more popular rather than package offer. Most of our itinerary & routes feature overland tour. It is worthwhile to travel individually and independently. The supply of cars in Burma has increased considerably. The quality of cars, mostly imported from Japan or Korea, has improved significantly.
We also provide our travelers with experienced advice on tailor-made tours as well as local flight, boat, cruise, train, trekking ,local guide etc .. upon request. Customer needs and satisfaction are always on our priority list, with a special consideration on time and budget available. Our samples of itineraries are flexible and well-suited to meet the requirements of each and every single client.
