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.

Thank you for such a fun holiday!
It was only a small group and very much catered to our individual interests.
Nicole and her team are amazing, nothing is too much trouble from sourcing chocolate to tailoring visits to sites according to interests.
The food was everything from street food to fancy restaurants, yet it was always delicious.
Thanks again for so many memories and fantastic shopping.

A truely memorable experience
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!

Amazing attention to detail
I spent 3 fabulous weeks in India with Red Door Tours.
Our organiser, Nicole was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, flexible and most of all a lot of fun to be with.
The attention to detail was amazing. Everyone’s interests were catered for and no stone was left unturned.
I learned so much about India itself as well. Nicole’s on the ground staff were also fabulous.
I can honestly say this is the one of best holidays I have ever had.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Red Door Tours to everyone. Nicole’s motto ‘No regrets’ was truly lived up to in India!
