Following a change of policy in May 2011, the party of Aung San Suu Kyi – the National League for Democracy in Burma – made an announcement that month encouraging informed and respectful visits to Burma.

As Southeast Asia modernizes rapidly, Myanmar remains the last country in the region relatively unchanged over the last thirty years. This tour, specially planned for the members of the Royal Society for Asian Affairs will take in some of the major places of Burma such as Bagan, Mandalay and Yangon but also some much less visited sites such as Loikaw, Hpa’an and Mawlamyine . The journey will combine traditional historical, cultural and artistic themes as well as a focus on present-day Burma. Under the auspices of the RSAA offices, a number of special meetings and events are being planned for the party.

The basic cost of the tour is £3,750 per person and the single room supplement is £830. A deposit of £150 is required to confirm your place.
