Burma - Myanmar travel guide and news
Former Burma, Myanmar, is at the intersection of many civilizations despite its comparative lack of politics. Situated on the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea, with Bangladesh and India in the western part, China in the northern part and Laos and Thailand in the eastern part, Myanmar offers the visitor a vertiginous variety of buddhistic shrines and ethnical variety, which is plagued by a Britisch history of colonialism.
Another enrichment of the country's history are the stories of the Burma Road that provided for the Chinese in their struggles with Japan during World War II. Myanmar, which the British governed as the partition of India, is strongly inspired by India's civilization in the styles of its stupa and temple.
There is much to see and do in Myanmar: crossing the Ayeyarwady River; travelling Mandalay and its King's Castle; experiencing Yangon Colony with its UK architectural style and many couples; seeing Bagan with its apparently infinite variety of couples; and discover the swimming towns of Inle Lake and the north-eastern part of the land, which is part of the enigmatic Golden Triangle with its mountain trunks.
To the south-east, Myanmar's coastline is littered with offshore islets. If you are not cruising on the luxury cruise ship The Road to Mandalay, Myanmar is for the rough and fearless. Most of these travellers take the old UK railway or coaches. It is the basic food of Burma's cuisines, strongly inspired by China and India.
There are three different periods in Myanmar: a warm one from March to April and a wet one from May to October; the best travelling is from November to February. The majority of tourists take flights from Bangkok or Singapore to Yangon. Due to bad road conditions and official rules, it is hard to find your way around Myanmar when trying to leave the well-trodden paths.
