Security in Myanmar - Myanmar Forum
Just some Bengali riots north of Rakine. So please do not trivialize your sufferings with such a negative remark, it is an offence to people's intelligentsia. More than 600,000 refugees are being driven out. As far as travel security in Myanmar is concerned, I don't think that's a big problem.
We' ll be there in January 2017 and see the country as very secure for tourists. This atrocity takes place in a place that is taboo for the tourists, so that the tours/visits are not affected. Don't cross out your vacation schedules because you have security worries about what happens to the Rohinga, the bulk of the country is sure to do.
Like we found both Laos and Cambodia with a very thin democratic plywood when you get to know the humans, the blinders come off and their real emotions come through.
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 released a UK State Department chart this weekend 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.
