Join us for an exciting week of travel and photography in Myanmar. Yangon, Bagan and Inle lake will be our life size studios and playgrounds.
We will visit some of the absolute highlights in this truely amazing country.
Recipient of the “Image of the Year Award, Nature”(AMERICAN PHOTO) and a winner at the “Travel Photographer of The Year Awards” 2008,
Felix Hug and his producer Jamie Boyd put together a unique trip with a mixture of relaxation and excitement. With the help of award-winning photographer Muha,
we have tailored a trip you will remember for a long time. We will stay in 3 different locations, with a completely different atmosphere: Yangon, Bagan and Inle Lake.

Felix has been to Myanmar since the 1990s numerous times and his images from the South East Asian country have been used by companies such as the BBC to the Lonely Planet guides, SilkAir (Singapore Airlines), Asian Geographic and Marshall Cavendish Singapore, latter in Felix's first assignment as book of Yangon.
This is our 3rd Edition and we believe our Myanmar Getaway is one of the best trips in our program.
With the recent attempt to open up the country more, the tourist numbers have been going up rather quickly. If you ever wanted to visit this amazing country, then now is the time.
We can offer you 14 years of experience and a team on the ground that has also supported even Steve Mc Curry on his trips.
We are looking forward to your participation.
