Marcopolo Travels & Tours is a small holiday company in Myanmar , dedicated for the travellers looking for more from their holiday than just a brief stay. We are group of interesting people who founded Marco Polo out of a deep love for destinations, cultures, landscapes and wildlife. We offer a far richer experience because we are based on a knowledge, expertise and passion for people and places that is then infused into every itinerary and experience .
We committed to being transparent and evidence-based about how we are seeking to increase the benefits of tourism to local people and places, in an effort to eliminate the greenwashing that had undermined ecotourism.
The impacts that tourism creates locally do not just result from hotels and transportation – but from tourists themselves and how they act and behave. For this reason we decided that tourists had to somehow be part of the process of thinking about and feeding back on the impacts of their holidays and the policies of our holiday suppliers.
Our idea is really quite simple: treat local people and places well, and they’ll often offer you experiences and insights into their ways of life that you wouldn’t otherwise get. You enjoy a more authentic experience and they benefit from jobs, income and ways to preserve their culture, environments and heritage. This is how we think tourism should be, and we call it Responsible Travel.
