Responsible Travel & Sustainable Tourism

At Myanmar Diaries, we agree so much with this statement and want to make sure that your diary is filled with beautiful stories. This is the story of a life-changing journey to a magical country. However, to be even more memorable, it has to be the story of a fair, respectful, and viable expedition around Myanmar. Tourism has become the lifeblood of the Golden Land and we are proud to be part of the adventure. However, the people of Myanmar, its animals, and its environment deserve to benefit from the presence of our travelers.
We apply the best sustainable practices in tourism because Myanmar deserves economic development interlaced with respect for the environment, local heritage, and culture. This is the story of mutual respect for both the local people and the travelers seeking authentic encounters and the untouched beauty of a country with a strong cultural heritage.
Travelife is a leading training, management, and certification provider for tourism companies which are striving to implement more sustainable practices in their tours and daily office management. Recognized in Europe, their name and values also have an international outreach. In Myanmar, less than 20 companies have reached the partner level. Myanmar Diaries is proud to be the 18th and we hope to be followed by many more!

OUR ACTIONS

DESTINATION ENVIRONMENT & COMMUNITY RELATIONS

We apply the best sustainable practices in tourism because Myanmar deserves economic development interlaced with respect for the environment, local heritage, and culture. This is the story of mutual respect for both the local people and the travelers seeking authentic encounters and the untouched beauty of a country with a strong cultural heritage.

EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES

Myanmar Diaries strongly advocates a “green” approach to tourism such as being socioculturally sustainable. We enhance cross-cultural exchanges and get local people involved in the tourism industry of their country. We do not trust in adapting local customs to travelers–we trust in local people introducing their cultural heritage to the world. This is how we empower locals and ensure a better future for Myanmar.

RESPONSIBLE MANAGEMENT & HUMAN RIGHTS

We enhance cross-cultural exchanges and get local people involved in their country’s tourism industry. Our commitment to sustainability extends through all of the phases of your journey’s life cycle…from the design of the visits to the contracting of our suppliers, and until your arrival on site. We support a viable way of visiting our country in terms of the hotels that we use, the transportation that we use, the energy that we consume, the land that we tread on, and the teams that we are working with. We always try to make the best decisions from a sustainable point of view.

SUPPLIERS & GUIDES

Human values are at the core of our little company and every day our work is driven by those values. That is what makes us more than a typical travel company! Our staff make your travel experience possible and receive the rewards they deserve. Salaries are fair and we make sure that our employees in our offices, our guides, and all of the staff on spot are fairly paid, treated, and trained. As all our staff are employed locally, it allows you to have a truly authentic experience.

CUSTOMER COMMUNICATION AND PROTECTION

All of the personal details of our clients are kept confidential. Our guests travel with trust. In between, our guests are in the hands of the professionals who give them opinions and make informed decisions. We love the country we live in and we want it for generations to come. We ensure our guests understand the local culture, we minimize our impact on local communities, and we respect the wonders of mother nature.

We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
