MOMist Luxury Guide 2008
URBANE NOMADS is a travel agency based in Singapore. The agency bills themselves as travel mixologists, offering unique destinations, pairing it with ‘select accommodation and unusual travel modes.’ Some of the tours come 2009 include a private jet tour covering Golden Triangle Thailand and Myanmar, before moving on to Putao, a remote north-eastern state in Myanmar that is notoriously difficult to get to due to the erratic flight schedule. Putao is at the foot of the Himalayas, where the lush jungles of Myanmar meet with the climate and mountainscapes of the Himalayas. What this results in is a rich biodiversity that includes red pandas and clouded leopards. Home here too, are many tribes including the Lisu, Rawang and Naga as well as the world’s only Mongoloid pygmies. Guests will be staying in a luxury resort designed by Jean Michel Gathy of Aman Resorts’ fame.
