With a bustling modern city, emerging beach destinations and more temples than tourists, Myanmar's rich and thrilling culture - of dozens of languages and peoples - is naturally a drawcard. But going to Myanmar is more complicated than just buying a ticket. Since 1988, Myanmar (formerly Burma) has been under the military rule of the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) - formerly known as Slorc - an abominable military junta. Prospective travellers should monitor events here and weigh up the arguments in support of, and in opposition to, travel.

Myanmar Adventures

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 | By sorkoo | Views [173]

It was something of a random decision to go to Myanmar. It's a country neither of us thought we would visit. We were drawn to photos of the sun setting at Bagan and the mysteries of a country that has only recently opened its doors to the outside world.... Read more >

Attention Please: It is strictly forbidden to ascend the Royal Lion Throne

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 | By iano | Views [154]

Attention Please: It is strictly forbidden to ascend the Royal Lion Throne. The words stared at me, or maybe I stared at them. I couldn't help but wonder, what would happen if I did? Would adoring crowds come streaming forth in order to pay their ... Read more >

Daily wake ups to raspy, cracked crows of roosters, and drifts into slumber with symphonies of cats brawling... I hung around Nyaungshwe and ran into some people from my trek group. We rode bikes around neighboring villages, waving to buffalo and people ... Read more >

  On the 20th I took a 10 hour boat ride through Pioneer Cruise, from Mandalay to Bagan. Initially I was disappointed to board because I'd read that the boat was a place to mingle with locals, but there were none. I enjoyed myself though and ... Read more >

Myanmar is proving to be everything I hoped it would be and I have so far only been here a day. (Contemplating changing my outbound flight because there's just so much to learn and experience here that 11 days won't cut it). I lucked out with my cheap ... Read more >
