Sampan Travel


For those jaded after seasons trekking up and down Southeast Asia from Chiang-Mai to Ho Chi Minh City, Myanmar (Burma) offers visitors the chance to reclaim the wonder felt when first sampling this corner of the world. The bamboo curtain that once concealed most of Southeast Asia parted in the 1970s, but the country then known as Burma remained in isolation from much of the world until the removal of the tourism boycott by the National League for Democracy and other international human rights groups in 2010. The world is now welcome in Myanmar; and the world is justifiably excited.
