Myanmar (Burma)

Myanmar is a country with a long, rich history. It is a country of warm, friendly and inviting people. Buddhism permeates the social fabric of its society and is clearly visible to the visitor. Its past history of colonial rule and the recently replaced military government caused it to stagnate. Until recently visiting Myanmar was a walk back in time and a visual playground.

Myanmar is now reemerging onto the world stage. With a great wealth of mineral resources, it will soon become a significant player in Southeast Asia.
