Burma Capital CityMyanmar capital
Innwa (or Ava) was the capital of the Myanmar Empire for a while. At the same elevation, there is now a new road link for road haulage to the city of Sagaing. It was so beautiful to pass through the villagers "mingguhlaba" and to share a beautiful hello! We had a tailback of bogies waiting for tourists for the regular trip through this part of the islands, with restricted means of travel (although they were described as missing cars, there were quite a few motorcycles and some cars).
It was a similar riding adventure to our Bagan but the riders we saw don't seem to be respecting their riding style (their investment). Exotissimo's exotic leader chose our rider to drive their impoverished bangs as quickly as possible on the rugged highways.
It was astonishing when the dazzled bangs and the car went straight into a puppy on the sidewalk at full throttle. When you walk here, please don't take the photograph of the chauffeur, choose your chauffeur with care and ask him to be friendly to ponies and other animals while in the car.
The ride in the coach lasts about 30 minutes. The coach seems to be the only way to visit the town.
Myanmar's capital city says about the world of travelling.
Naypyidaw, Myanmar, is one of the weirdest capitals in the whole wide underworld. Just a century old, the city is a vast labyrinth of 20-lane motorways, administrative buildings and pastel-coloured condos. The over 300-foot high, shiny golden colored marquee looks like an age-old miracle. The Uppatasanti may be an imposing edifice - especially when it is taken in the evenings in front of a dark cityscape. However, although the Uppatasanti is an imposing edifice, its splendour is a facade .
Not a miracle of antiquity, the building was finished in early 2009 and part of the building was supposedly constructed by kids, some of whom were seven or eight years old. It is almost an accurate reproduction of the more celebrated Shwedagon pit, which was constructed in the former capital Yangon in the fourteenth cen.
Naypyidaw's coronation gem is really only the man-made core of a spiritual death city, a coarse monument to the unnecessary size of a violent army regimes. And, as recent research has shown how important the use of online messaging and common pictures has become for travel plans, an important issue for those who want to lure people to a destination:
Some years ago I travelled to Guyana and Suriname - two small Latin American lands and two places I knew practically nothing about - to research for my work how the distribution of travel guide materials, as well as the blast of information available through a variety of local and regional newspapers, has transformed the way we see the outside World.
However, last year, as I was traveling around Myanmar for a Kindle Single, adapting the land to an inflow of people and investments, I began to think about the impact of corporate citizenship not only on the way we are traveling, but also on the places we are visiting. Whilst the superficial allure of the Uppatasanti Pagoda indicates that my original assumption may be real - that what a place looks like has become more important than what a place actually is - nowhere is this suspense more obvious than in Myanmar's most frequently pictured and loved holiday resort, Bagan, a huge plateau of antique shrines and couples, which lies a few hrs to the north-west of Naypyidaw.
One side of the coin is tourist officers hoping to benefit from the increase in Myanmar by making Bagan one of the world's largest tourist attractions. A August 2016 quake wreaked significant havoc on nearly 400 of Bagan's sanctuaries, which included the Shwesandaw Pagoda, the most beloved sundown viewpoint.
But, more important, store the picture. Researchers in the field of travel and leisure have acknowledged the impact of the use of online and offline forms of communication on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. That is what medias call "deserved media", free advertising created by users who want to exchange their experiences. In the case of a good news item (deserving journalists have an unhappy backward tendency), the news item is extremely efficient and highlights the destination's "brand" in consumers' minds.
Nielsen, a leading research firm, found that consumers have much more confidence in "recommendations from those I know" than they do in terms of news coverage, Internet user feedback or, not unexpectedly, TV, newspaper and/or on-line advertising. So, if someone turns to Facebook or Twitter or Instagram to exchange reminders of their last holiday (for example, using the #Bagan hashtag), the contribution is not only a one-on-one upgrade, but also an efficient advertising medium for airline operators, hotel operators and travel agents associated with that particular area.
In order to go one stage further, many of these scientists specifically quote the impact of images in societal medias. A survey showed that the probability of publishing a picture gallery or movie on Facebook has more than doubled recently compared to an on-line look.
You were more than four time more likely to publish a photograph than to write an on-line blogs or diaries. Of course, some of this is due to the easiness with which these grids allow us to split our images: snaps, filters, Uploads, repetitions. As those societal networking sites keep growing - Facebook has over a billion people using it every day, Instagram over three hundred million and Snapchat over a hundred million - the world's shared photographic library will only keep growing.
It is estimated that nearly three billion pictures are posted to Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp every two years. To those in the tourist sector, the implications are clear: make your travel destinations instagram-worthy and observe the media/visitors you deserve.
