One of the most miss-understood countries in Asia, Myanmar remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world; a land of breathtaking beauty and immense cultural heritage.
A luxury cruise along the Irrawaddy River will provide you with incredible insights into the Myanmar’s captivating history, while the streets of Yangon show off the relics of the colonial period. Beyond the history, Myanmar is a feast for the eyes with the lush green landscape of Shan Hills to the pristine white beaches of Bay of Bengal.
The international spotlight has been placed firmly on Myanmar over recent years, as it enters into a new age in its history. With this new interest comes immense investment, resulting in brand new hotels and conference centres being built throughout the country, enabling Myanmar to enter the MICE market with force. Travelling to Myanmar allows you the opportunity to be at the forefront of this transition, whilst simultaneously playing a key role in the country’s economic and international development.
Pacific World Myanmar was formed in 2016 through a partnership with Myanmar Polestar, being one of the first established Destination Management Companies based in Yangon. Pacific World Myanmar will provide with you a wealth of knowledge, experience and dedication, in a country taking its first steps into the incentive and conference market.

“Not only me but the whole group was happy with the services Pacific World (Myanmar Polestar) provided and the professionalism shown by the Myanmar Polestar team was beyond description. We had a very warm welcome on arrival and their constant support while we were there. The touring was well conducted and they also organised a visit to the Yangon General Hospital and local speakers for our conference sessions. The hotels we stayed at were really nice and we were lucky to have spent 2 nights at the Belmond Governor’s Residence because The Strand was under renovation. We even had an exquisite dinner at the Belmond, which was much appreciated by the group.” Dr Nighat Faruqi, Managing Director of Conferencing Nomads.
