Further Up,Further In

“This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now...
Come further up, come further in!”

Sampan Travel prides itself on offering those who journey with us a luxurious and indulgent trip. We can direct you towards the finest Burma beaches, recommend the best restaurants and hotels, and deliver the most comprehensive guided tours. There is an inexhaustible amount to discover in Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake, and for a first visit to Myanmar, travelling purely to ‘the Grand Four’ and their environs allows for a full-bodied and invigorating trip

However, for those who want to get off the beaten track, for those who have already witnessed the wonder of Shwedagon Pagoda and sunset at Bagan, for those who want to visit places where only a smattering of foreigners go each year, we urge you to come with Sampan, and together we will travel further up, and further in.

Off the Beaten Path in Myanmar

Myanmar rewards those travellers who are here for longer than a fleeting visit and willing to give the Golden Land more than passing consideration. The country is so large and so diverse (the biggest mainland country in Southeast Asia with over 100 distinct ethnic groups speaking over 100 distinct dialects) that the seemingly unusual holiday destinations featured in this section span from the frosty peaks of the Myanmar mountains in Chin and Kachin States to the deserted virginal islands of the Mergui Archipelago; from the ephemeral mystique found at the Lost City of Mrauk U to the casinos of Mong La, Myanmar’s Sin City.

Coupled with our Immersive Travel opportunities, our Further Up, Further In destinations are those found off the beaten path, exhibiting the diversity of this country and in doing so allowing a greater more circumspect engagement.

Besides providing luxurious and sustainable trips, Sampan Travel also want to ensure that those travelling with us are offered a panoptic perspective of Myanmar. Sampan can take you to explore the tales behind the tradition, the causes behind the culture, and the history (at times bloody and brutal) behind the seemingly untarnished landscape. To put it plainly, Sampan Travel offers the most exceptional off the beaten track holidays in Myanmar.

Many of these destinations have only recently been opened up for foreigners to visit, and therefore are very much off the beaten track. This allows for exciting journeys and the chance to interact with towns, villages and communities unpolished and unblunted by excessive tourism.

It also means that the term ‘luxury’ must be taken in context: when travelling to and between these destinations, the roads may be bumpier, the food less familiar, and the likelihood of power cuts that much greater. But do not balk! Sampan and our partners will ensure that your trip is as comfortable as possible, and we feel sure that any jolts and discomfort will be worth the excitement in experiencing these more far flung corners of the country.

Besides your itinerary and travel essentials, traipsing to these destinations you will require a ready smile, an open mind, and a willingness to be surprised around every corner. Let Sampan and this country do the rest.

Unseen Myanmar awaits: hidden villages, tranquil coastline, secluded mountain paths and the interiors of local homes.

Come with Sampan, and together we can delve further up and further in!
