SST guides, tours and locations are the best to see all the endemic and near endemic regional birds, and some wonderful locations culturally in the nation Htay was wonderful and and the care of clients was incredible. They were a wonderful company to bird with and made us feel welcome comfortable in Myanmar. We were well cared for sure.

We booked a 16 days birding/cultural trip with SST Tourism and Travel.
Except visits to some cultural highlights of Myanmar we wanted to see the nature.
Especially for us SST organized a lovely nature trip between our desired sights. Our guide had extensive knowledge of birds and their habitats. We came in pristine areas with much species. In the evenings we ticked off the bird counting lists he provided us.
All accommodations, transport and meals were well organized. The drivers were skilled and taking good care of us and our luggage.
But there was more; during the trip there were a lot of surprising moments like visiting markets along the road, drinking tea on very special spots, tasting local products in authentic restaurants , and when our guide found out we love wine so much he even took us to a wine tasting!
SST is a fine travel organization; good communication by email before and after the tour (helping to identify the birds on the pictures), all elements of the tour professionally organized, and guides and drivers flexible and attentive!
Thank you very much!

I would like to highly recommend the services of S.S.T. Tourism
In November 2014 my friend and I travelled to Myanmar, and decided we’d like two days of bird watching. I found S.S.T Tourism on the Internet and booked their services through the manager Mr Soe Min Aye. He proposed a schedule that was exactly as I required. Two days of birding on the dates that I chose, with an overnight stay at a nature reserve.
Mr Soe Min Aye’s services were to prove even more helpful than that. When we arrived in Yangon and rang to say we were ready to start our tour, Mr Soe Min Aye came to meet us at hour hotel and pointed out that we had arrived a day earlier than scheduled! We therefore realised we had a day with nothing to do and no hotel room booked. Mr Soe Min Aye immediately proposed to book us into a reasonably-priced hotel for the extra night and said he would put himself at our disposal, with a chauffeured car, to take us on an extra day’s birding on the unscheduled day. We did this and had a very enjoyable and profitable day on a nature reserve just outside Yangon.
After that, we began the two days birding that had originally been planned. Once again a chauffeur driven car was provided along with the services of a professional bird watcher Mr Ko Ye. He and the driver picked us up from our hotel early in the morning and took us to the Hlawgar Park nature reserve, then onto Moenyungyi Wetland about four hours drive north of Yangon.
Everything was taken care of. Our meals, our accommodation, park entrance fees and boat fees. We had a fabulous two days and, due to the expert bird spotting skills of Mr Ko Ye, I was able to see dozens of birds that I had never seen before.
I would like to thoroughly recommend the professional and friendly services of S.S.T. Tourism for anyone looking to have an enjoyable time watching wildlife in Myanmar.
