Asia’s Very Last Frontier
For the student group seeking the most adventurous and rewarding journey in Asia, there is no country equal to Myanmar.
In the last 100 years over half of the world’s countries have been renamed with Myanmar being no exception. Since 1989, Burma has become Myanmar and its capital, Rangoon, has become Yangon. Whatever you call it, Myanmar is unique among all other nations in the region, as for over 50 years it has been virtually cut off from the rest of the world.
Always praised for its beauty and still often criticised for its politics, Myanmar is a fast changing society inhabited by a hospitable and gracious people. The influence of many Asian cultures and of its former colonial master, Britain, can be seen in its customs, architecture and cuisine. Yangon boasts charming colonial architecture; in contrast, Bagan is an archaeological zone that rivals the Temples of Angkor in its beauty. Mandalay the former royal capital and Inle Lake in the Shan State are other not-to-be-missed destinations making ideal bases for boating and hiking excursions.
All our trips can be modified in any way to better suit your trip aims, budget and your school’s particular educational objectives.
