Abercrombie & Kent Offers Myanmar as a New Destination

We are thinking 2012 is going to be the year of discovering new destinations, perhaps starting with Myanmar, which has opened its doors to tourism more and more in the last year.

Interest to Myanmar has grown increasingly since the National League for Democracy released a statement saying the country was open for responsible tourism. Abercrombie & Kent is one of the tour operators ready to take VIP travelers to see this couture that has changed very little in the last thousand years.

Myanmar's Burmese Heritage - This Marco Polo Club Invitational program in February 2012 sold out within a month of being announced. We hear A&K is working to add another departure in the fall. This tour is 16 days, and priced from $6,295. It will take travelers to explore the old-world charm of Myanmar (think temples, craftsmanship, Inle Lake and the Ayeyarwady and Lemro Rivers).

Angkor Wat & The Road to Mandalay - This small group escorted journey combines two of Asia's UNESCO World Heritage Sites with a three-night cruise through Cambodia and Myanmar. Visit the Khmer city of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, before exploring the heart of Myanmar by land on the Ayeyarwady River. This tour is 12 days and starts from $5,995.

Signature Myanmar - Experience Myanmar's spirituality and charm by floating over thousands of golden stupas in Bagan in a private hot air balloon. Travel by private boat to Mrauk Oo, a town that has seen little change since its foundation. Another excursion includes a trip to Shitthuang Temple. This trip is 13 days and starts from $4,620.
