Burma photographic journeys
Our team in Burma will take great pleasure in helping you get beneath the skin of this beguiling country on this fascinationg tour. Yes they will show you the highlights, including a hot air balloon flight over Bagan but they will also give you an invaluable insight into the people and way of life.
Best time to be there
Burma has three clear seasons: from March to May are the very hot summer months, the wet and humid monsoon runs from May to October and the cold dry winter lasts from November to February. The best time of year to visit is late November early December when the rains have gone, the landscape is lush and green and the skies are crystal clear. However any time from late November to March is a good time to travel.

A&K Myanmar Relief Fund
AKP's global reach and on-the-ground presence proved to be priceless assets when, in May 2008, Cyclone Nargis devastated Myanmar's Irrawaddy Delta. Our office and teams in Myanmar quickly gathered and delivered essential supplies to affected villages, raising more than $540,000 in contributions for emergency aid. The A&K Myanmar Relief Fund provides support for orphanages and other ongoing needs resulting from the tremendous devastation of Cyclone Nargis.
