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.
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. In 2020 we were shortlisted for the Experience Mekong Showcase – celebrating organisations that provide authentic local experiences while at the same time making a significant social impact. 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.
