Since the 1990s, Myanmar (or Burma) has officially been open to the world but it wasn't until 2010 that it became available to everyone that was interested. Visiting Myanmar is now a race between tourists rushing to see a South East Asian country that has been relatively untouched by the West for several decades and a tourist industry that is madly developing to meet those tourists' needs. Things are changing rapidly in this country and with 2016's landslide shift towards a new democratic party, the question about whether it is ethical or not to travel here can firmly be answered with a yes. By going now, you will still have time to see this amazing land in transition from its colonial roots to a modern day nation and tourist attraction like its South East Asian neighbors. Find a place where locals still wear traditional garb, with people sporting paste covered cheeks while munching on betel nut. Ride railways that retain the same bumps and character as the days they were installed during British colonial rule. Explore ancient Bagan and the highest concentration of Buddhist temples in the world. Many Myanmar or Burma travel guides and books struggle to keep up with the furious change that is happening in Myanmar; the hundreds of new restaurants that are popping up, the shift in prices and the huge variety of accommodation that is now available, and how the government's changing attitudes are affecting restrictions to tourists. With this Myanmar travel guide you will be getting information that is current as of 2016 and can give you the facts on the ground as they are now. What the true cost of a hotel is and which fees you need to pay as you move around. There is no longer any excuse for staying in a rickety hotel without air conditioning or eating questionable food from street vendors. Whether you are a seasoned traveler or this is one of your first times abroad, you will be given concise and easy-to-follow 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Kollins.
