Burma - Myanmar
Myanmar, the country formerly named and still known as Burma, is one of the few truly original travel experiences remaining in this much-traveled world. Decades of social and economic isolation have preserved here many of the traditional features, physical and cultural, which have been lost in other Asian countries. Myanmar is a captivating travel destination - for its diversity of sightseeing, for the wealth of cultural and scenic attractions it can offer and, above all, for the warmth and friendliness of its charming people.
Much of the country’s attraction is in its history and artistic culture. Myanmar lies at the meeting point of two of the world’s great civilizations, China and India, but it blends both of these influences with its own very special local characteristics. Early civilization in Myanmar dates back to the 5th century and reached its peak of power and creativity in the 11th - 15th century. The people have preserved traditional values, and are deeply devout in their religion, with a close-knit family system and respect for elders still powerfully observed. Myanmar people are fun-loving and festivals form the center of Myanmar social life, with each month having its own festive occasion. The country is blessed by nature with great geophysical diversity, with scenery varying from the vast central agricultural plains, to snow-capped mountains in the far north. The Shan States feature cool and verdant hills, while the long coastline offers endless golden beaches still to be opened TO tourism. From north to south flows the majestic Ayeyarwaddy (Irrawaddy), one of the world’s greatest rivers and source of agricultural wealth to millions.
