Khiri’s Myanmar Team has eight enthusiastic members—each brings a healthy dose of local knowledge, interest in the tourism sector, great communication skills, and adventurous spirits to the table. Collectively, our team has over 30 year’s tourism experience in diverse fields, including FIT tailor-made tours, group tours, ticketing, and hotel reservations.
Our Myanmar office offers many new excursions to show visitors the real Myanmar rather than the typical ‘pagoda rally’ offered by many other tour companies. We want our clients to experience the genuine friendliness of the Burmese and so we work hard to organize excursions where our clients can engage with locals.
We are especially proud of our ‘Voluntourism’ excursions in Yangon where visitors can help teach English or cook lunch for over a hundred orphans. We have many distinguished staff, but Ms Su Mon Latt is well worth mentioning: When cyclone Nargis hit, she had already been working in tourism for over seven years but decided to quit her job in order to help people in the areas devastated by the cyclone. Now that the delta has recovered, she has returned to the tourism sector by joining our Myanmar team in 2010.
Our General Manager, Edwin Briels, has ten years of work experience in Myanmar. Before joining Khiri Travel, he worked for Air Mandalay, Exotissimo Travel, and Balloons over Bagan. Edwin is fluent in Dutch, English, and French, as well as conversant in German. What he likes most is showing tourists the real friendliness of the Burmese people and to help facilitate genuine interactions between foreign visitors and locals.
