Mingalapar, the ultimate travel guide to Myanmar!

Founded in 2013, by a team of travel and Myanmar lovers.
Mingalapar is the first online platform that allows you to create taylor-made trip to Myanmar.

Mingalapar was born in 2013, during a memorable travel to Myanmar.

Loïc and Yves, best mates, passionnated by travel, decided to spend a whole summer explorating Asia.

After being to countries with different cultures (Japan, China, Indonesia, Thaïland), they felt for their final destination, Myanmar.

The country (at that time) was just opening, and the 2 friends discovered wonderful, unique landscapes with thousands of temples. They felt like walking on a sacred untouched land.

They were also touched by the warmth of burmese people, so welcoming and cheerful, truly kind and eager to hear about their experience in Myanmar.

While in Myanmar, they had some difficulties finding information about the country, its traditions, its must-sees, news about it…

So they decided to create MINGALAPAR, a website dedicated to Myanmar. They wanted people to shares the news, tell little stories about their trip, create interactivity amongst myanmar lovers and also with local through the Forum.

And MINGALAPAR was born. Out of Love for Myanmar.
