Let us send you tips for travelling through Myanmar and stories from the road …
Our 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.
We are in rhythm with the beat of the country and well-placed to recommend new experiences when creating intimate, handcrafted journeys through Myanmar.
At all times, Sampan Travel conducts safe and responsible travel.
Sampan was the third tour operator in Myanmar to achieve Travelife Certification and in both 2018 & 2019 we were named Best Responsible Tour Operator by the Myanmar Responsible Tourism Institute. Our Sustainability Policy can be read in full here.
We believe that when coupled with creativity, this commitment to responsible travel – at heart, simply a compassion for the people and places of Myanmar – does not detract from a journey but enriches it.
This kind of travel is transformative travel. Travel that does not suspend reality but instead encourages engagement with new realities.
This is honest, authentic travel. Boutique travel. Slow travel.
Due to conflict in the country and a problematic political landscape, we recognise the concerns that some travellers have about visiting Myanmar. Sampan’s Managing Director Bertie Lawson has written down in full why he believes that travelling to Myanmar is still the right thing to do. And in another article he outlines the main arguments surrounding the morality of responsible, tailor-made travel to Myanmar.
You can browse our selection of itineraries and let us know what you are looking for, after which we can begin crafting your customised journey through Myanmar.
We recommend spending some time exploring the country through our destination pages and our Slow Travel Myanmar Magazine, offering an array of perspectives of the country through the prism of travel.
When you are ready, we can begin crafting your bespoke journey through Myanmar.
