We are still here! Let us send you tips for travelling through Myanmar and stories from the road …
Sampan’s small team is based in Yangon. This means we are able to greet our guests upon arrival and meet face-to-face with those already living here. It also ensures that we are in rhythm with the beat of the country, abreast of developments, and able to visit new openings and recommend new experiences.
We were the third tour operator in Myanmar to be Travelife Certified and we have been winners at the Myanmar Responsible Tourism Awards in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Our Sustainability Policy can be read in full here: https://www.sampantravel.com/about-us/responsible-travel. In 2020 our magazine won a PATA Gold Award for its success in helping travellers understand better and explore further.
We believe that when coupled with creativity, our commitment to responsible travel – at heart, simply a compassion for the people and places our guests visit – does not detract from a holiday but enriches it. This kind of travel can be transformative travel. Travel that does not suspend reality but instead encourages engagement with new realities. This is honest, authentic travel. Slow travel.
