DESTINATION ENVIRONMENT & COMMUNITY RELATIONS
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.
