Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
Between now and Jan. 20, 2013, the first 20 people to book Luxurious Myanmar will go into a lottery for a 50-percent discount on the journey fee. Once the 20th booking is made, Backyard Travel will randomly select two winners.
The blanket has been taken off Myanmar, but its not yet at the forefront of peoples minds, said Maeve Nolan, Backyard Travels General Manager. We want to help get it there, because its one of the friendliest places on earth, with one of the richest cultures youll find anywhere.
Luxurious Myanmar is a seven-day, six-night experience that includes horse-carriage rides, sunset cruises, wine-tasting sessions and stays at The Strand and Governors Residence, opulent, colonial-style hotels in Yangon that date to the turn of the last century and evoke a bygone era.
At half off, the tour is US $835 per person. The price excludes international airfare, three domestic flights and any activities not mentioned in the itinerary.
Myanmar began showing up on travelers radars almost two years ago, when 1991 Nobel Peace Prize recipient and Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was relieved of a house-arrest sentence that spanned more than two decades. In January, the New York Times included Myanmar on its list of 45 Places to Go in 2012.
Backyard Travel launched in June as a 21st Century solution to the traditional travel agent. Instead of setting up as a tour operator, fielding business from agencies as operators typically do, the Bangkok-based firm is reaching overseas to woo travelers from the get-go.
The idea is to provide travelers with direct access to people who actually live in Asia full-time and are trained to handle all aspects of an itinerarys development, said Nolan, who has been working in the travel industry in Asia for more than a dozen years. That's our M.O.
If the total number of Luxurious Myanmar bookings does not exceed 20 by Jan. 20, 2013, the lucky draw will be cancelled.
