Myanmar, also known as Burma in its colonial name, is a Southeast Asian state with a great ethnic diversity in societies that maintain a traditional way of life. A long-standing dictatorship that oppressed people and isolated them from external influence is one of the reasons the visitor will feel in an Asian country of a past era. Countless monuments add to this unique experience, golden decorated temples, colonial architecture, a lively Buddhist tradition and exotic natural scenery. After the post-democracy period, tourism began to slowly discover this magical destination, fortunately without spoiling its character until recent.
The Burmese are cheerful, friendly people who will cordially welcome the visitor and because of the long-standing isolation they’re still quite unaffected by western modernism. Staying in a local family hut is an amazing experience.
