Myanmar Textile Tour

  Myanmar  

Textile Tour

Myanmar is a country steeped in spirituality, culture, and tradition. Once known as Burma, it’s population is 90% Buddhist, which is reflected in their gentle and welcoming nature.

Many live as they have done for centuries so handmade is the norm, rather than the attraction. Weaving is fundamental to communities all over the country. There are 135 unique ethnic groups each with their own individual patterns and techniques.

By day you’ll step off the map to explore breath-taking landscapes and laid back villages and by night, you’ll sleep comfortably in boutique accommodation.

February 2019

My trip to India ‘Textiles, Temples and Tastes of India’ was fabulous.

What I loved was that as well as seeing the spectacular treasures such as the Taj Mahal, we spent lots of time exploring everyday India.

Local laneways, shops and restaurants, flying about (sometimes eyes tight shut!) in tuk-tuks and meeting wonderful locals.

A truly memorable experience, thanks Nicole!
