Are you sure it's secure to go to Myanmar?
Our own experiences and up-to-date information from our regional office make it easy to visit all major Myanmar cities - Yangon, Bagan, Inle Lake, Kalaw, Ngapali and Mandalay. However, we appreciate the concern for security. Burma was only opened in 2010 and is still an uncharted territory for most peoples, especially those from the West.
The latest (2016) bad press and coverage in the world' s press of the Yangon bombing and civilian disturbances in other parts of the nation seemed insecure to Myanmar. However, such messages represent only a small part of the facts about Myanmar! It' not fair to consider Myanmar insecure just because of these events.
In fact, travellers to Myanmar should be more worried about pick-pockets in overcrowded areas than about their bodily wellbeing. Civilian conflicts have been recorded in some parts of East and North Myanmar. These areas are restricted to foreign nationals and are far from the most important travel destination. While the UK and Australia still advise travellers to shun the Rakhine (Rakhaing) state in the west of Myanmar, Mrauk U in the north of Rakhine has been welcoming more and more travellers in recent years.
The most popular tourist attractions - Mandalay, Inle Lake, Bagan, Kalaw and Yangon - offer more than enough material for beginners to visit, experience and know the true Myanmar. This is a pleasant place for beginners in Myanmar. There is nothing to fear on the security front if you are within these limits.
A strict Buddhist civilization with a low level of criminality makes Myanmar a safer destination. We have observed that the areas we visit (Mandalay, Inle Lake, Bagan and Yangon) are just as secure, whether in the countryside or in the town! In Myanmar, the humans are the kindest we have ever known!
However, you should take regular measures, such as storing your valuable items in a security lock. Sanitation, the prevention of diseases and the provision of medicines are of great importance to travellers in Myanmar. In Myanmar, sanitation is horrible for the ordinary westerner. Jealousy fevers and anemia are the biggest worries when travelling to Myanmar.
First, seek advice from your physician about vaccinations you should take when travelling to Myanmar. In the past, a physician who worked in Malaysia for 7 years quickly and professional assisted Lissy in dealing with the mouth. The Yangon has the most easy hospital connections, while Bagan, Inle Lake and Mandalay have the most. The majority of accommodations are fitted with a case for emergencies.
When you need to see a Myanmar medical professional in an emergencies, find a post-graduate medical professional from a developing or relatively developing state. Yangon's privately owned clinics are only available at great cost. Although there are many different means of transport in Myanmar, some weird and others fun, we recommend that you keep to it!
However, train derailment is still the norm in Myanmar! We recommend that you take out full health and traveller's health coverage before your trip, especially if you are travelling to Myanmar or other South East Asia states. It should include all objects included in the route and urgent health care evacuations. In Myanmar we offer interesting trips.
The tour starts or ends in Yangon or Mandalay and lasts about 9 nights; visit Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake.
