Responsible Tourism in Myanmar
Responsible Tourism is travel that makes better places to visit and better places to live. This means everyone benefits from the experience, including the visitor and the host communities. We work with a selected group of NGOs in Myanmar who are making an impact on the lives of local people. We have chosen a combination of causes to ensure you can assist in any area of development, be it healthcare, education, child welfare, heritage preservation and the promotion of arts and culture.
