Myanmar (or Burma as it is often still called) is a far cry from the neighboring touristic favorites of Southeast Asia after years of closure for overseas. Myanmar is officially spoken in Burmese. Myanmar has seen a huge growth in visitor numbers since its re-opening to foreigners in 2012.
Hot spots such as Yangon and Bagan can be particularly crowded during the high seasons. Eating in Myanmar is not costly. Myanmar's towns and villages can be pricey, mainly because of high demands. The Yangon Hotel is the most costly, sometimes up to 300 pounds per overnight for the ultimative luxuries.
