A Photographer's Journey Through Myanmar
Private, fully customized tour, Dates TBD.
This highly specialized itinerary has been scouted and designed by a professional travel and street photographer, to ideally meet the objectives of other travel and street photographers.
This tour offers endless photographic opportunities for environmental portraiture, bustling markets, traditional artisan workshops, incredibly ornate Buddhist temple architecture, timeless religious rituals and a wide range of stunning landscapes.
We do, of course, cover the iconic, must-see locations such as the incredible Shwedagon Pagoda complex and bustling markets of Yangon, and the vast temple ruins of Bagan.
However, we veer far - and often - from the standard tourist path to explore lesser-known and supremely photogenic places, such as the remarkable cave temples of Hpa An, the balanced "Golden Rock" Buddhist pilgrimage shrine of Kaiktiyo, and the Kakku pagodas and Sunken Stupas of Sagar, at Inle Lake.
Currently, we have no scheduled public group departures for this tour. It is available on request for 8 or more people (with an American lead guide), or as few as 2 (with a Burmese lead guide), and with the tour dates, itinerary routing, class of hotels and other services custom tailored to suit the group's instructions and priorities.
Please email or call us for more information, or to be placed on a list for updates about future public group tours.
Due to well-publicized Human Rights issues, touring in Myanmar may be controversial. It is a personal decision that each of us must make for ourselves.
Having traveled there many times since the late 1980's, we have observed that embargos and boycotts seem to hurt the working-class people the hardest, especially those involved directly or indirectly with international tourism. Further, it seems that individuals avoiding travel to Myanmar as a political statement have no meaningful effect on government policy there.
We donate 10% of our net profit from our Myanmar tours to The Rohingya Refugee Relief Fund, a well-known and highly regarded registered non-profit organization. (Four Star rating from Charity Navigator).
