Kensington Tours Featured In The New York Times - 36 Hours In Yangon, Myanmar
Ceil Miller Bouchet of The New York Times spends a brief but all-encompassing stint in Yangon, Myanmar to reveal the reasons why the country's major city is hoping to become Southeast Asia's next boomtown. In 36 hours, Bouchet uncovers the time-warped city including a visit to the golden splendor of Shwedagon Pagoda. She endorses enlisting a local guide in advance as being advantageous in that it provides cultural insight and helps support economy. Kensington Tours' half-day "Spiritual Shwedagon" tour is acknowledged as an example. Furthermore, the article notes that our local operator in Yangon donates a portion of proceeds to community projects - like the renovation of a 120-year-old Buddhist ordination hall at the foot of the pagoda that is featured in the tour.
