2012 NEW SERVICES - Packaged Tours
IN ADDITION TO CUSTOMISED TOURS ARE AVAILABLE FROM AUG - DEC 2012
visit Bagan now
Bagan needs at least 2 days
to appreciate its heritage
religious sites and the
customs and traditions of village
life. Ideally, a customised
3 days 2 nights tour is
recommended for lovers of
history and culture.
Singaporeans who love
shopping and fast internet
connections will not enjoy
Myanmar tours and travels.
Since March 2012, a sudden
spike in Caucasian visitors
Bagan mean that there is few
available vacancies for the
3 domestic flights from
Yangon to Bagan.
The problem nowadays is also the
shortage of quality hotel
accommodation and domestic
flights for the surge in
tourism. Plan your tour at
least 2 months in advance.
Singaporeans and foreigners going to
Myanmar need at least 3 working days to get their visas
approved in Singapore. You need to provide your passport, 2 passport
photos and photocopy of your
identity card. We can do the visa application on your
behalf. The fee is around $90.00/person if less than 6 persons.

PRICING OF TRAVELS AND TOURS
Travel Pte Ltd, a Singapore-licensed travel agency,
collaborates only with reputable and reliable licensed tourist
agencies in Myanmar to provide a value-for-money, hassle-free,
and enjoyable travel to Myanmar for Singaporeans and Singapore
tours are customised and pricing therefore depends on the
period of travel (peak season or off-peak season), the quality
and availability of hotel accommodation, the relatively higher
costs of domestic flights, the higher cost of Silk Air fares
as compared to MAI (Myanmar Airways International) fares and
provision of meals.
As there is a large increase in international tourism to
Myanmar after the lifting of US and European sanctions, the
demand for 4- and 5-star hotels and airline booking is
extremely high since February 2012. Many more Europeans
and Middle East tourists and businessmen and NGOs (Non-Government
Organisations) have booked up the insufficient number of high
quality hotels, leading to a shortage of such accommodation as
contrasted to 2008 when tourism was in the pits and high quality
accommodation was much less expensive.
Today, in Yangon, almost 50% of the tourists at Shwedagon Pagoda are
Caucasians whereas in 2008, I could not see a handful of them. The
4- and 5-star hotels have not been built in sufficient numbers to
accommodate many tourists who require such a quality of hotel.
Therefore, many Singaporeans will find that there are no such
vacancies when they want to travel to Myanmar in 2012.
We specialise in creating tours
to Myanmar's various places to suit your budget and
requirements. This is the meaning of "customised" tours
as advertised in the Singapore Straits Times.
CUSTOMISED TOURS &
MYANMAR ARE CREATED FOR SINGAPORE PROFESSIONS, CORPORATIONS, SCHOOLS &
BUSINESSES, for example, dating agencies, associations of doctors, dentists,
lawyers, accountants, orchid & bird hobbyist groups, individuals
or couples who do not want mass tourism services can be discussed
