Travel Expert's Birding Team

Since the establishment of Travel Expert Travels and Tours Company Limited in 2009, we have been, as part of our interest, pinning our spotlight to birding around Myanmar, which blankets varieties of species of animals in her solid tropical rainforests. Throughout the years from the commencement, we have set up a number of bird watching tours almost all over the green country. We even targeted to arrange birding before Myanmar’s dramatic reform of 2010, but the cumbersome toil to achieve permission for birding access in remote and border areas was ultimately impossible and it led to failures.

Our Travel Expert’s Birding team is specialize on bird watching and arrange just only birding tours in Myanmar. Having good experiences and strong organization, we are always ready to arrange all different type of the Myanmar Bird watching Tours as mention on our website.
