As Myanmar’s tourism industry continues to rapidly expand, it is more important than ever to ensure locals can reap the benefits. GoP, our Australian government’s 2017 Mekong Business Initiative Innovation Grant winner is ensuring that local people can take advantage of tourism in Myanmar and grow sustainable with the development.

GoP is an online tour platform amassing tour providers and options into one place, offering high-quality service, reliable bookings and instant confirmation.

Through innovation GoP is successfully solving the problem of time consuming, confusing and often unreliable travel planning in Myanmar. GoP gives local people, local tour companies and local guides access to the market.

Six months of impressive traction has brought 300 paid users, 55 five tour companies, 100 local experts whom 60% are female, generating opportunities across the region. It is exciting to see where this innovative impact will take GoP as they venture further in Southeast Asia.
