Myanmar (formerly Burma) is one of the most strikingly beautiful places on Earth, with lots of landscape, wildlife and cultural photo opps. I have crafted a private photo tour to Myanmar that is truly special.
By “private”, I mean really private. I have been offered an opportunity to take just 5 photographers with me on this tour of a lifetime. The 14-day tour includes 13 nights accommodations in 4-star hotels and a 14-seater air conditioned bus just for our small group. All domestic flights within Myanmar are included, plus tons of extras.
I will be coordinating this trip with the same tour company that has coordinated my very successful Sri Lanka photo tours for the past few years, so I am confident this will be a very special event. I have included the itinerary below.
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the trip is that we will be accompanied by world-renowned Myanmar photographer A.P. Soe. You may want to check out his imagery here.
The fee for the tour will be $7,250 and does not include airfare to and from Myanmar. A $3,500 deposit is required to reserve your spot. That deposit is 100% refundable until December 1, 2016. Final payment will be due on May 31, 2017.
