What to Expect
Itinerary This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Yangon Region, Yangon Region
Myanmar has over 100 discretely separate indigenous communities, each with its own rich tradition of handicrafts. Our tour provides a diverse exposure to the wide variety of authentic traditional products, whose contemporary manufacture enables these indigenous communities a needed source of revenue to sustain their culture and traditions. Purchases made here directly serve to sustain these communities.
Burmese craftsmanship has long been recognized as one of the world’s great aesthetic traditions. Religious and secular objects, combined with a rich tradition of folk art, makes shopping at the hard-to-find exclusive native handicrafts shops our tours patronize, as well as at more accessible local markets, a true museum tour experience. Authentic pieces are typically priced far below world norms, from under a hundred to a few thousand dollars, reflecting decades removed from international markets.
Whether you are a sophisticated collector/dealer, or just interested in the traditions of a rich culture, this tour is sure to satisfy. All establishments we patronize have long experience in shipping worldwide.
