I first came to Myanmar in 1997 at the tender of 17, when I took a copy of the Myanmar Guide from Lonely Planet. Though the book was in English, my German schooling gave me a good understanding of the German text.
This year my grand-parents had asked me to come to their second home, Yangon, and they encourage me to take some lessons about Myanmar before I arrive. But soon I found myself looking for the page "About the authors" in my travel guide. Intrigued by" this country" (an evocation of Hillary Clinton's 2011 Myanmar trip, when she was in a predicament about how to approach Myanmar after years of US sanctions), I wanted to know something about the writers who had succeeded in writing a book about a land that was for me a secret place where parts of my background had been - and no other foreigners, as I had misled.
As a young man, I thought there was no coolest work in the world to write as a guidebook. 17 years and countless trips to Myanmar later (my grand-parents had left in 2008 after completing their lifework, the first and only German-Myanmar-diction book after 25 years), not only had my knowledge of Myanmar improved drastically through my interactions with many other Myanmar expatriates, but I had also contracted with one of the foremost German guidebook publishers.
I was as nervous as I was when I went back to Germany, autographed the deal, purchased a new video recorder and returned to Yangon with a one-way-voucher. Myanmar's message in Germany was very helpful and had given me an annual book completion permit. In Yangon, another writer of Myanmar tourist guides (who worked with another publisher) said that of all the writers who were writing about automobiles and those who were writing guides were considered the most corrupt by the general population.
I' m a travelling novelist, I thought: "I even had trouble to sell my advertisements to a hotel, tourist agency or the like, which I thought was an effortless work. Myanmar, of course, only had 1 million visits per year at the date of my research, and no one thought it necessary to spend money on publicity.
But the hard part was that I was the only writer. The other Myanmar travel guides - and Lonely Planet included - are the product of a collaborative effort of three or more authors. I' ve invited former classmates of the School for Asia and African Studies in Berlin to speak on specific subjects such as Myanmar's history, culture, music, and languages.
However, today I wish I had asked more writers to discuss other issues, such as "Before you travel" - always the most tedious part - and other related sections. Because everything is natural for me in Myanmar because I've gotten used to it. However, while I write this paper for book launches during my yearly trip to Germany, I am faced with the most fundamental issues that potential travelers to Myanmar may have, such as security, illness, currency conversions, opening times of the restaurants - and of course the wheather.
If I were asked to compose a guide again today, I would first make a map on my desktop background at home that would list all the themes, sections, sub-chapters and individual items, and then begin to record content. - on the road in the country of the white elephants.
It was not until the evening before the book went to the printing house that the most important thing was brought to rest: the name. My book was quoted on Amazon as Travelling the Land of the Golden Pagodas for many month, which I never liked. This was a hint at the historic Myanmar cynasties, and fortunately I had dealt with this subject appropriately in my script and also provided appropriate photograph.
