Is Burma Safe to Visit

Are you sure Burma is safe to visit?

In Kachin State (with the exception of the cities of Myitkyina, Bhamo and Putao) there is a continuing threat of armed conflict. Are you sure it's safe to visit Myanmar? That is a question that is often asked by visitors. It is our personal feeling that we must support the local people who benefit from our visit. There are hostels in major cities and tourist areas.

Most of Myanmar safely to visit: tour operators

Travelers are called on not to give up Myanmar in the midst of the continuing violence in North Rakhine State, even if tour consultations are published and some refusals have already been registered. This growing dispute has resulted in several alerts to travelling to the state of Rakhine, where the problems are mainly concentrated in the Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung districts.

Myanmar Tourism Marketing this weekend released a UK State Department chart that highlights the country's safer, more environmentally friendly areas with the major touristic centres of Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Inle Lake, all within secure boundaries. Frontier areas like Rakhine and Kachin Northern Shan are taboo. Khiri Travel Myanmar CEO Edwin Briels said while the global news that are making its way around the world will no doubt have an influence on the country's young travel sector, he added that Myanmar has always had limited areas.

It reaffirmed that the vast majority of countries are still open to visitors. There are fears that the actual impact on the sector will be felt in 2018. "Go on visiting the land in a sustained way to help all peoples of all races as well as religions," he added.
