To Putao and Beyond

Putao, Northern Myanmar

Golden Triangle/Putao,
Myanmar tour
(March 28 to April 3, 2009)

When it comes to remote destinations, Putao, the capital of Kachin state, north-east of Myanmar, is reachable only by air. It’s one of those ideal locations in travel specialist Urbane Nomads’ itinerary, as the agency has access to a private jet for out-of-the-way destinations like this. Some of the tours Urbane Nomads is promoting for 2009 include a private jet tour covering Golden Triangle Thailand and Myanmar; and at Putao, guests will stay in a luxury resort designed by Jean Michel Gathy of Aman Resorts’ fame.
