Asia Tour Company Offers Both New and Time-Tested Tours to Myanmar (Burma)

Asia Transpacific Journeys Has Been the Myanmar Travel Experts for Over 20 Years

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - Jan 23, 2012) - With Myanmar (Burma) undergoing dramatic political changes and opening up to the outside world, Boulder-based Asia Transpacific Journeys is introducing two new trips to the Southeast Asian jewel, in addition to its signature tour that it has run for over 20 years.

"A new era of openness and optimism is dawning in Burma, akin to what Europe experienced at the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989," says Marilyn Downing Staff, founder of Asia Transpacific Journeys, who pioneered trips to Burma in the '80s. "Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi announced she will run for a seat in parliament, which is a great indicator of Burma's monumental change," says Ms. Staff.

A beautiful traditional culture remains almost untouched by modern influences. Exquisite temples, crumbling pagodas and pristine islands await discovery. The lovely rural countryside is home to some of the most welcoming people in Asia. Fabulous restored colonial villas and boutique hotels in traditional style dot the land.

Asia Transpacific Journeys Tours to Burma

  • Burma -- Land of the Golden Pagoda has been their signature tour for over 20 years. The perennial bestseller is an in-depth immersion into a remote and exotic land, melding classic sights with seldom-seen destinations.
  • Burma and Bhutan -- Tradition and Transformation travels to Asia's two most isolated countries for an extraordinary immersion into their ancient traditions and current transformations.
  • On Burma's Frontiers will be hot off the press, a new trip for late 2012. It goes where no tour operator has gone before, to extremely remote destinations, visits tribal villages, and takes a luxurious cruise on a remote section of the Irrawaddy River.

Asia Transpacific Journeys is considered the expert on tourism in Myanmar. They have run tours to Myanmar for the Harvard Museum of Natural History, and both Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler magazine have awarded them the "Top Travel Specialist" honors for Myanmar, recognizing their local connections and in-depth knowledge.
