Jack Burma

After various roles and many years in the travel industry, I founded my own travel company, Green Season Travel.

My approach is learning through working. Using the experiences from my own travels around Myanmar, I created our own unique travel products and packages. Whenever I have free time, I go on trips and explore. I also guide tours on occasion and gain from travelers' feedback and my experiences in the field.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialize in cultural, nature, adventure and wildlife tours all around Myanmar. Our tours are action-packed, and you have the opportunity to experience locals' way of life, eat authentic foods, stay in local homes, and doing outdoor activities.

Some of my favorite places are Fantastic Hpa-An, where you can see limestone hills, caves, and visit hidden Kayin villages. Yangon is fascinatingly exotic, Mandalay is the royal capital city. Bagan is a rich archaeological site with over 4,000 temples. Inle Lake is beautiful, and Kalaw and Northern Shan State are perfect spots for trekking. Ngapali Beach is world-class. Many more to tell!"

How did you get involved in travel?

"I love traveling. I'm passionate about discovering new places on my own, I love to see locals and different tribes and learn their culture and traditions, and I especially love trying local foods. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I will never forget my visit to Chin Mountain Adventure. I was able to drive a 4-wheel car and stayed the night in a bungalow 8,000 feet above sea level. We drove further up to base camp (at 9,000 feet!) and continued by motorbike up to Mt. Victoria (10,300 feet). I spent the trip trekking up and over hills to Chin Villages, where Mythons (cows) kept creeping up to our camp before running away again. I'll never forget this awesome experience!"
