Intrepid increases Burma departures

Intrepid Travel has added a further 36 departures for its Best of Burma tour in response to exceptional demand from passengers.

Before it added the new dates, 99 per cent of trip places available in 2012 had been sold, and some departures scheduled for 2013 were already fully booked.

The adventure travel company recommences tours in Burma later this month and will now offer weekly departures of its 15-day itinerary throughout most of the year.

“There’s been an incredible response to Aung San Suu Kyi’s call for tourists to return to Burma,” said James Thornton, Intrepid Travel’s General Manager, Global Sales. “It’s a beautiful and fascinating country, and anyone who discovers Burma with Intrepid can be assured that we have planned every aspect of our tour carefully to ensure it benefits local people and communities as much as possible.”

Intrepid’s 15-day Best of Burma trip is led by a local guide and visits Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, the Ayeyarwaddy River, Kalaw and the surrounding mountains, and Inle Lake. Accommodation is in locally-run hotels and guesthouses, with one night aboard a boat on the Ayeyarwaddy River.
