Myanmar is one the last truly untapped regions in Southeast Asia. It has a richly diverse culture with some of the deepest running Buddhist heritage on the planet. Bordered by Thailand, Laos, China, India and Bangladesh, Myanmar is a land inhabited by many different peoples. Colourful hill tribes dot the highlands, coastal fishing communities live along the beautiful Indian Ocean, and throughout there are the smiling faces of the Burmese.Visit this website for further information about Myanmar
Myanmar’s former capital Yangon, has retained much of its languid tropical feel. Crumbling colonial buildings are slowly being restored as new hotels and restaurants fill the niche of catering to travellers needs. You may not find a wealth of luxury accommodations here, but there are plenty of accommodation choices in all the main tourist towns.
Travel upriver along the Irrawaddy where towns such as Pagan and Mandalay will blow your mind with their inconceivably vast number of Buddhist temples, pagodas and ancient palaces. Around 87 per cent of Myanmar’s population is Buddhist. Although a large part of the upper and lower reaches of the country are off limits to foreigners, there are a dozen world class sites which have an ever-expanding tourism infrastructure.Visit this website for further information about Myanmar Population
