Burma's tourist industries are generally seen as under-developed, and travelling to Burma has been a political problem for more than two centuries.
The long-standing democratic symbol, Aung San Suu Kyi, for many years dispirited foreign nationals from coming to the countryside and said that their funds would only serve to enrich the reigning army jungle and its coalition partners, who had largely monopolised the state.
