Myanmar retains the power to surprise and delight all the tourists and travellers. Be dazzled by the Shwedagon Paya, contemplate the 4000 sacred stupas scattered across the plains of Bagan and visit all important Buddhist sights in a country where pious monks are more revered than rock stars.
In 2015, Myanmar voted in its first democratically elected government in more than half a century. Thanks to this openness to this outside world, modern travel conveniences, such as mobile-phone coverage and internet access, are now common.
Myanmar is a nation composed of multiple ethnic groups, and remains at heart a rural nation of traditional values. You'll encounter men wearing the traditionnal longyi and chewing betel nut, while horses, buffalos and carts are common rural transport. Drinking tea, a British colonial custom, is enthusiastically embraced in thousands of teahouses.
Thankfully, the development of the country is not too rapid, leaving the simple pleasures of travel in Myanmar intact, drift down the Ayeyarwady River in an old steamer or luxury cruiser, rest and sunbath on a beach on the blissful Bay of Bengal, trek through pine forests to minority villages scattered across the Shan Hills without mass tourism. Best of all, you'll encounter locals who are gentle, humorous, engaging, considerate, inquisitive and passionate. They will be really happy to know where you come from, what do you think about their country, etc. Now is the time to make that connection.
