Traveling is a positive experience for everyone, and it allows us to experience other cultures and open our eyes when it comes to our own.
It has been said that the more we travel, the more experience and therefore, the more we learn.
The country has a rich culture vastly different to that of the west, unique traditions that have stood the test of time, majestic religious monuments and a fascinating, if at times tragic, history. The landscapes are diverse, from pristine beaches to towering mountains, and the people are diverse as well with more than 300 ethnic groups residing within Myanmar’s borders. And the gentle nature and warm hospitality of the locals never fails to impress visitors. There truly is something for everyone.
There is also no better time to come and experience Myanmar. The country is undergoing a slow but noticeable transition, bringing about positive improvements for locals and visitors alike.
Infrastructure improvements: Roads are being upgraded, airports are being expanded and new hotels are opening everywhere. Although power cuts are still a part of daily life, they are shorter and less frequent than in the past.
Communications improvements: A few years ago, staying in touch with friends and family back home was virtually impossible for visitors. These days the internet has vastly improved and internet cafes are everywhere. International telecommunication companies are working on improving mobile phone coverage, creating affordable SIM cards and opening international roaming for the first time.
New destinations: The government has been lifting travel restrictions on remote areas, allowing foreigners to now explore new corners of the country.
Growing cultural scene: With censorship all but eliminated, Myanmar’s arts scene has exploded in recent years. Yangon and Mandalay, in particular, are home to dozens of art galleries and live music concerts, stage performances and lectures are held with regular frequency.
However with growth does come some negative effects: slowly western-influence is spreading in to the daily life with an increasing number of people shunning the traditional Myanmar longyi for jeans. Historic buildings are being torn down to make way for new, high-rise buildings. Popular tourist sites are seeing more and more tour buses.
To put it simply, if you are interested in an untouched culture, beautiful architecture, witnessing an incredible mix of people and ethnic tribes, and want to see the ‘real’ Asia, give Myanmar a go. Now is the time and we’re confident that you’ll love it! A trip to Myanmar is more than a holiday; it’s an experience to be remembered forever.
Myanmar is a country in Southeast Asia, formerly known as Burma. Previously an independent kingdom, Burma was annexed by the British Empire into the colony of India in 1886. The occupation brought social, economic, cultural and administrative changes to the once-feudal society. The Japanese Empire invaded and occupied the country during World War II but it was returned to British control until independence in 1948.
The name of the country was changed in 1989 by the ruling military government, officially recognized by the United Nations. Some national governments, such as Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and much of the Burmese population do not recognize this name change, since they do not recognize the military government.
Despite multiparty elections in 1990 that resulted in the main opposition party winning a decisive victory, the military junta refused to hand over power.
Key opposition leader and Nobel Peace Prize recipient AUNG San SuuKyi, has been set under house arrest from 1989 to 1995, and was again placed under house detention in September 2000; her supporters are routinely harassed or jailed. In 2011 the military junta was dissolved following a general election in 2010 and a civilian government has been installed.
