What makes Myanmar the best place to visit in Southeast Asia
Recently I returned to Myanmar for the second year. Now more than the first one, I am confident that Myanmar is the best place to go to South East Asia. Myanmar outdoes them all. Places of interest are only part of the purpose of traveling to Myanmar. Lake Inle is lovely, but you will recall the boating and watch the fishers using their old-fashioned net.
Though I stay alert wherever I go, I consider Myanmar to be a secure state. And, of course, there are exemptions, but most women travellers I know would consider Myanmar for a trip alone. Be wise and investigate, but I would consider Myanmar secure. I' m inclined to make mates wherever I go.
Myanmar is an extraordinarily welcoming place and one of the high points of the trip. In Myanmar, non-nationals do not have the same passion for Thai, Vietnamese or Malay food. I think Burma foods are underestimated. Thing is, it's not just burma chow here.
Recent trips to Myanmar have opened my eye for tasty Shan pasta, recently opened Farm-to-Table in Yangon and other ethnical groups that have opened in Yangon Dining. Myanmar will please your palate if you know the right places to dine. Looking at Myanmar's dimensions next to the remainder of Southeast Asia, it looks about as large as Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.
The majority of Myanmar's visitors only travel to Inle Lake and Bagan, so you have the highest concentrations there. Drive into the vast expanses of Shan State or somewhere in Chin State to loose the tourist. Today there are 135 different ethnical groups in Myanmar, speaking about 100 different tongues.
Myanmar's name is actually more comprehensive than the old name Burma, which only represents the vast majority in Burma. There are many in Myanmar who are proud of their different civilizations. Myanmar is a different race of people. Burma draws more nosy and respectable travellers than neighbouring Southeast Asia, where many backpacker travellers look for cheaper alcohol, narcotics and Rave.
Burma is not a festivalgoal. It is for travellers seeking affirmative links with natives who look deep inside themselves and for those who are open to learn about this intriguing and complex world. Dustin Main and I went to Myanmar, whom I knew through my first blog and whom I encountered years ago on my first journey there.
He has travelled extensively to Myanmar and is working on a documentation work and has some very good friends. Include the best dining and dining stands to make a great journey. We were also presented with interesting individuals and distinguished leaders. It is strongly recommended that he go on one of his journeys. It is not the simplest and certainly not the least expensive, but I think Myanmar is the most interesting and best place to visit in Southeast Asia.
