I moved to Myanmar when my company started offering off the beaten track itineraries and unique experiences in this amazing country. Since then, we have created many new routes together with the local communities and we support sustainable tourism projects throughout the country. We are the only local agent in Myanmar offering such a variety of tours and going far into the wildest places usually untouched by mass tourism.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Since we work together with local communities to develop our offer, we build many exclusive adventure options. For this reason, we need to have our own offices in every region, but also constant contact with the the cities and villages that our travellers are willing to discover.

Customized trips are our specialty, working closely with the travelers before and during the trip. Our main specialties are trips related to culture, well-being, trekking, biking, motorbiking, community-based tourism, wildlife, diving, healthcare, and gastronomy."

How did you get involved in travel?

"In 2012, I did two different trips in Myanmar, both booked through my current company. I instantly fell in love with this magnificent country - it was more welcoming and extraordinary than what I could imagine.

My main goal is to develop tourism while respecting the environment and local traditions. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My first step in Myanmar was into the last royal capital, Mandalay. The cultures and landscapes fascinated me - my first impression of this country still gives me a chill, even after 6 years. "
