About Go-Myanmar.com

Go-Myanmar.com was created with the goal of simplifying the discovery of Myanmar as a travel destination. Its founder, Marcus Allender, spent a month travelling in Myanmar in 2010, and fell in love with its stunning scenery, rich culture and beautiful people. He found that solid, up-to-the-minute information on destinations, where to stay and how to get around was very difficult to come by, and that even the latest print travel guides were by their nature out of date in such a fast changing country.

This website was created in 2012 to address that need, by offering a wealth of information for all types of visitor – and has been continually expanding since. As well as an abundance of destination writing, blogs, photos and videosGo-Myanmar.com provides a wide variety of tour options to fit the needs all types of traveler – from budget to luxury. We also provide comprehensive domestic transport, accommodation and business travel booking options.

Go-Myanmar.com is continually updated with the latest information that people travelling to Myanmar need to know, from new hotels, to the latest prices, to areas becoming accessible to foreigners. We are always adding new features and services, so sign up to our newsletter to avoid missing out (form at the bottom of page)!
