How You Can Help
Culture Beyond is working to support their Tour Guides and Food Vendors by raising money during this difficult time. Because of COVID-19, all tourism in Myanmar has stopped. Our guides and vendors have been without income for nearly 3 months. We aim to raise $6,000 USD which will give 12 guides and vendors $500 USD or support for 3 months. All money raised will go to them.

I worked there for 11 months then I started working as a freelance guide. In 2018, I got a chance to work for Yangon Food Tours. As I'm a foodie, I always read reviews of food bloggers. One day, I found "Yangon Food Tours" on facebook. I was very curious about this tour because I never knew that food tours existed and this one was for tourists! I contacted Yangon Food Tours to apply as a food guide and that’s how I got this job. I started working for Yangon Food Tours in September 2018. Until now, I've met more than a hundred clients with YFT. I love food and I love being a tour guide. That's why, Yangon Food Tours is a bridge which helps me to combine my love of meeting new people and exchange culture, history, knowledge and food!
