Burmese Culture - Burmese Convention
Like in any other countries, it is strongly recommended that travelers familiarize themselves with Burma's practices before they visit to prevent unintentional misconduct. In general, the more you try to appreciate and appreciate the indigenous cultural heritage, the more you will be appreciated in exchange - and the more you will be able to experience your journey!
The Burmese civilization is ruled by the concept of the "face". Losing face or causing someone else to loose face, embarrassing them or humiliating them in any way, in other words, is to be averted at all cost, and this is the cornerstone of Burmese Mannery. This also means that when you ask someone in Burma a query, they often give you an explanation, even if they don't really know it - so remember.
In Burmese, the expression ane relates to this wish to prevent facial expressions from being lost, while the expression hoc relates to a conception that is similar to the expression "power". It is intended to build up through action in previous life and is used to clarify and strengthen the Burmese society's hierarchical state.
Burma is very respectful of old age as it is in Burma's nationality, as well as in the Burmese tongue, which uses age-related designations of honour. Elderly persons are always serviced first at meals, when something is given to them, it is done with both arms, and younger persons prevent rising to a higher standard than their ancestors.
In Burma, it is customary to publicly depict attachments such as hand held or the killing of an arms between a friend (of the same sex) and the Burmese household, but usually not between pairs. Usually this is a more liberal policy in big towns, but in general this is a conservationism and the demonstration of love between pairs - however gentle it may be - is often disdain.
Buddhism occupies such an important place in the hearts of Burmese societies that it sets a very high precedence and treats Buddhism with caution. There' even a specific Burmese terminology for talking to them! Men as well as Burmese ladies have a traditional kind of black and white dress named a long black dress that is synonymous with a long coat for a foreigner.
Although both men and females carry Longyis, the styles and designs are different between the two genders. If it is carried by a man, the lunggyi is referred to as a passion; if it is carried by a female, it is referred to as honore. Burmese men in official circumstances usually wears a Manchu coat over an English collar top, sometimes with a tan.
Meanwhile, ladies are wearing a shirt and a scarf with buttons. It is wise for visitors to be modest as Burma is a relatively old-fashioned state. Particularly when you visit places of worship, you should be wearing clothes that cover your shoulder and leg and take off your boots and sneakers. It' also common to take off your boots when you enter a Burmese home.
Tips are not the rule in Burma, but they are becoming more frequent in areas of tourism. Like in most parts of Southeast Asia a little good-natured bargaining is also in order in Burma. Most Burmese homes have a tradition of eating their food from a low desk while seated on reeds on the ground.
Unlike many other Asiatic nations, each guest usually orders a meal for himself, rather than sharing a large choice. Traditional Burmese foods are consumed with the right finger, but nowadays most locals use spoons and forks.
You use the forks ( (held in the lefthand ) to slide the dish onto the tray while using the tray to ate. When you are taken to lunch with a native, you can ask your home guest to cover your supper. Even if you are inviting a native to dine, you should take care of his meals.
It has become much simpler to talk frankly about policy in Burma since the 2010 reform - and although there are scourges ('religious and racial' conflicts), there are generally not too many issues that are regarded as off-limits. Burma does not take the perceptible disregard of Buddhism lightly-see our section on the Burmese faith for more information.
