DiscoveryJourneys

Sampan’s Myanmar discovery journeys are tailored towards those who aren’t travelling to Myanmar for the first time. They assume that visitors have already seen Shwedagon Pagoda and sunrise over Inle Lake, and are now looking to travel further up and further in so to gather a more comprehensive and intimate picture of this fascinatingly diverse country.

When embarking upon one of our Myanmar discovery journeys guests can be taken high up into the Chin Hills to climb Mt. Victoria and crush a glass of millet rum with the inked, Christian tribes living there. In Kachin State travellers can canoe across Myanmar’s largest lake (roughly the size of Manhattan) and visit the riverside town of Katha where George Orwell wrote Burmese Days. Guests can be taken to the Golden Triangle to trek through the villages of an assortment of ethnic groups as well as visit the wild border town of Mong La, known as Burma’s Sin City. We can bring you to the lost city of Mrauk U in the old Kingdom of Arakan, to the Western Terminus of the Burma Death Railway, and out onto the Mergui Archipelago, which are some of the most exotic places to travel to in Southeast Asia. Guests can visit one of the country’s many working elephant camps in Taungoo, try the peppery Kayah Sausage in Loikaw (dubbed Southeast Asia’s last frontier), and journey down to Victoria Point, the southernmost tip of mainland Myanmar.

All of our discovery trips offer travellers the chance to taste the eclectic flavours of Myanmar, exploring deep into its turbulent history as well as gathering a richer understanding of where it is today, and where it might end up tomorrow.

Travel in Myanmar’sRemoter Regions

Myanmar is one of the least developed countries in Southeast Asia and tourism here remains in its infancy. For this reason, when one plans to travel to Myanmar’s off the beaten track destinations, they should not expect all the creature comforts found in Mandalay or Bagan. Nonetheless, Sampan Travel strive to make any journey as comfortable as possible, and hope that you will feel as we do that a bumpy train ride and lack of 7-Elevens is a small price to pay for exploring a country that is yet to fall victim to globalization's sweeping, bland brush.

Like all our suggested journeys, these itineraries can be chopped and changed around to meet the requirements of our guests. Similarly, if this is your first foray into Myanmar, we can always combine these itineraries with one of our Essential Journeys of the Grand Four to ensure that you do not miss out on the country’s most popular destinations.
