Philantourism in Myanmar

After being off the tourism map for so long due to political unrest, and with continuing ethical questions being raised, many people want to visit the diverse and interesting Myanmar but have concerns about how to do this in a responsible way.

We believe that with our guidance you can absolutely visit in an ethical way that supports the local communities who rely on tourism for income, and even help with numerous humanitarian, wildlife and environmental campaigns.

Join a family-run organisation - where your money goes directly into the community - to stay in the remote Myit Kyan Gyi village and take a boat trip to spot rate Irrawaddy dolphins; dive the Mergui Archipelago and stay in a beautiful beachside eco-lodge; or pamper yourself at the infinitely incredible Wa Ale resort in one of their treehouses or beach villas and enjoy your seaviews, watersports and delicious meals safe in the knowledge that your money is going into the resort's Lampi Foundation which supports the conservation of the surrounding forest, local schools and villages, plus marine conservation in the Myeki Archipelago including the first turtle hatchery in the Lampi Marine National Park.
