Myanmar as a country is rich in history, traditions and spectacular scenery. As a developing country, we face a number of challenges and we are determined to avoid pitfalls unfortunately all too obvious in some neighboring countries. Grand Lotus Tours is guided by the strong belief that Tourism can make a meaningful contribution to our country and we wholeheartedly adhere to the principles of the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism.

Our active participation in relief and reconstruction operations in times of duress like the recent floods that afflicted good parts of the country (2016) or fundraising to the tune of USD$600 000, reconstructing villages, their power grid, clean water supply, providing medical treatment and rebuilding schools at the time of cyclone Nargis (2009) are but a few examples of how serious we are about corporate social responsibility.
