Easia Travel (and Easia Incentive) was created in 2000 by three travel professionals bringing together their knowledge of the industry. With 9 offices, 314 multi-lingual staff, Easia 'Make Asia Easy for you'. They specialise in designing bespoke incentive trips to Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. Connection with local people is at the core of their philosophy on travel and as a result they are committed to introducing travellers to the rich cultures and scenic diversity of the destinations.
By regularly carrying out quality assurance checks with their third party suppliers, staying updated with the requirements by law in their own countries and ensuring their standards exceed those required by UK Health and Safety Laws, Easia Travel guarantee the smooth completion of their projects.
Myanmar is one of the last remaining places on earth that has not given in to the tourist trade and, as a result, is still genuine and untouched by the hands of Western influence. The country as you see it today remains much the way it was centuries ago. After a 15 year ban on tourism ended in 2010, Myanmar (formerly Burma) slowly welcomed back international travellers with an emphasis on legitimate and sustainable travel. That’s why Easia Travel works as much as possible with local people ensuring a fairer distribution of the benefits linked to tourism.

In order to properly celebrate the end of an outstanding incentive journey they offer unique and quality caterings. Throughout Myanmar, the visitors can experience numerous settings for different times of the day in different locations. Your clients can enjoy a candle light dinner in an ancient temple of Bagan, Burmese afternoon tea in a monastery, Shan picnic in the bamboo forest and many more options. In order to make this experience even more special and unique, incredible places can be privatised and set just for the occasion.
The relatively untouched nature of Myanmar allows Easia Travel to create out-the-box incentives for groups. Throughout Myanmar, activities such as boat racing on Inle Lake, a lavish sunset cruise on sandbank, a blessing ceremony or offering of oil lamps can be organized. Easia Travel work with local partners to make sure the experience is authentic whilst also having a positive affect on the community.
