About Us

The Golden East Travel and Tours is a full-service Incoming Tour Operator in Myanmar. Its founders are 100% Myanmar tourism professionals with knowledge in each destination and services in this region, as well as employing overseas native speakers in key positions in the company to ensure ease of communication. Star Academy (formerly known as Star Resources Academy) was established in 2005 to help our young people build up their careers in Hospitality and Tourism by offering first-class education courses. The company then expanded to include Tour Operations primarily with the goal to increase awareness of Myanmar as a first rate tourist destination. This is why we look into every detail of your trip, to insure each itinerary has all the ingredients to satisfy our clients.

We are officially accredited with the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism, which is the Myanmar governments appointed authority for tourism in the country. We are also members of Travel and Tourism associations in Myanmar, and played a key part in developing the Common ASEAN Tourism curriculum development program. Together with government officials and Myanmar tourism associations, we regularly travel to tourist destinations to lift standards of accommodation and services, and are currently contributing to the development of new travel destinations in the country.

To provide our clients with an unforgettable trip, with quality services that exceed their expectations and to educate local people and empower them to develop tourism in their own community to help themselves, their families and generations to come. We accomplish this by giving our students the opportunity to gain hands on experience as they assist our qualified and professional staff.



We also cooperate with NGO’s and community organisations.

Our Team of Experts:
We believe that no matter how great a place is, only an experienced travel expert can help you discover its unique and amazing qualities. Star Resources Travel and Tours team of specialists works great passion, discipline and knowledge not only to show you the best of Myanmar, but to allow you to feel it with all your senses.

First Class Transportation:
Our priority is to ensure our clients a 100% safe and comfortable trip. This is why we often use air transport as Myanmar roads are slow and not well maintained. But when we do use road transport it is in new buses or private cars, which are maintained on a daily basis. Our drivers know the roads well and drive with strict safety measures.

We only feature hotels and lodges that we have stayed in and we believe to be the best in their area, always looking for value, character, and good service.  In some of the secluded and undeveloped regions, the obvious trappings of comfort may not be immediately apparent, but something special is everywhere: a unique style, a remarkable setting, wholesome comforts, and a dedication to protect their natural setting and to please every guest.

Sustainable Tourism:
Star Resources Travel and Tours believes in the right of future generations to have a healthy environment and natural resources that contribute to a better quality of life. No matter where you go or how you travel, you will have an effect on the environment and the people you visit. Our company also believes that you can have a more authentic and meaningful trip when sustainable tourism practices are applied.

Our Tours:
Our trips are carefully designed to combine cultural and natural riches with comfort, safety, luxury and adventure to create trips our guests will talk about for a long time to come. We achieve 4 key components; discovery, value, pace, and choice.
