Golden Myanmar – Travel Photo Workshop


I find it difficult to describe my experience of visiting Myanmar for the first time. Being closed of from the rest of the world, it’s almost like time travel, Myanmar is a culture frozen in time. It’s a magical land of traditions, stoic sagacity of the charming people who live there, of more than 100 different ethnic origins. With warm smiles, wide open arms and doors to their humble homes, the people of Myanmar show us hospitality at its best without the slightest hint of preference for material wealth. Everywhere you go, you are genuinely welcomed by a friendly hand and interesting conversations.

The country has thousands of exquisite sacred stupas and temples which decorate the mysterious landscape of rivers and forest filled round plains. Myanmar is a true treasure chest for passionate travel photographers who dream of displaying ancient history merging with pure and enticing natural wonders and beautiful landscapes.

I emphasize that we travel in entirely safe environments, far away from any turbulent situation mentioned in world news.

A developing opportunity to be seized

Now is the time to capture this well kept secret. Only a few years ago, Myanmar was completely frozen in time and untouched by technology from the Western societies. This is now slowly changing as the borders have been opened, no one knows how long the country will keep it´s specialties . Precious traditions and unique customs are widely seen, they have been proudly cherished and worn however with increased exposure to the western world, one can already sense a slight modernization and change in the bigger cities. This tour offers you the life changing chance to witness, feel and capture this immeasurable culture and society which is likely to change and develop quickly – this is an opportunity that might be missed forever.
