FoodTOUR details

Discover a country’s culture first through its foods. Let us introduce you to an authentic world of local flavors, not homogenized tastes geared for tourists. Naturally, we include artisan crafts, historical sites, and local specialists. Globetrotting Gourmet is committed to sustainable tourism and responsible travel. We recognize not only the environmental and cultural costs that tourism can exert, but conversely how to contribute positively. We ensure your dollars are directly shared throughout communities: to individual operators and small businesses alike, and not just to large, foreign owned consortiums.
Globetrotting Gourmet specializes in low-impact small group and individual travel, and we strive to give our clients the most authentic experience possible. In return, we also designate a portion of our proceeds from each and every tour to a local worthy cause or training program.

BURMA / MYANAMR

burma-2017-tourAfter a half-century hibernation from the world, Burma emerges as Asia’s most exciting destination. And few know this country better than Robert & Morrison –- we’ve hosted tours here since 2002 and have been traveling to Myanmar since 1996. Cruise with us along the mighty Irrawaddy, and discover a world unlike any other.

Burma was labeled a land where time stood still, but we prefer to think of Myanmar as a place where you are still treated like a visiting guest, not a tourist. Join us for an authentic experience in food travel, unique locations, fascinating markets and the finest in textiles & crafts.

We’ve secured exclusive reservations at The Strand, an all-suite colonial-era hotel, and the country’s most prestigious address. With only 32 rooms in all, this is a rare opportunity.

Exclusive lodgings at The Strand, hosted by cookbook author Robert Carmack & textile designer Morrison Polkinghorne.
