TBB Tours Myanmar Motorcycle Tour Program

Formerly known as Burma, Myanmar is slowly opening its doors to motorcycle tourism. Whilst it is not yet possible to enter and travel within Myanmar as a free independent tourist, by joining TBB Tours, you will experience first-hand the stunning beauty of one of the world's least explored countries, and meet and interact with its warm, open-hearted people.

TBB Tours have been riding and operating tours in Myanmar since the borders were first opened, offering you great local knowledge and peace of mind to enjoy your trip with them. As with all emerging economies, Myanmar is on the edge of undergoing great change with India and China hungry for the abundant natural resources. This will irrevocably alter the country and not necessarily for the better or to the benefit of the great majority.

Come with TBB Tours on this magical tour and experience the “real” Myanmar before it is too late. This tour is "all inclusive", meaning that everything apart from evening meals and alcohol is supplied. Bikes, riding jacket and helmet, fuel, insurance, accommodation for 14 nights, breakfast, lunch, and any admission fees are included. This is a tour suitable for anyone with a reasonable amount of "big bike" experience.

Pillions are welcome. TBB Tours' riders do not ride extremely fast and definitely not recklessly, but you must be competent and comfortable with speeds averaging between 80 to 120 kilometers per hour.
