General Information

Officially the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and formerly known as Burma After a brief Japanese occupation, Myanmar was reconquered by the Allies and granted independence in 1948. Following a coup d’état in 1962, it became a military dictatorship. For most of its independent years, the country has been engrossed in rampant ethnic trouble, and now it has been involved in one of the world’s longest running ongoing civil wars. In 2011, the military junta was officially dissolved following a 2010 general election, and a nominally civilian government was installed. This, along with the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and the release of political prisoners, had improved the country’s human rights record and foreign relations and has led to the easing of trade and other economic sanctions.

Unfortunately, we have not yet visited Myanmar, but it is still on our list Myanmar really is one incredibly country. Paradise beaches with perfect water and white sand, misty mountains, tangled jungles, majestic Inle Lake, the wide Irrawaddy River, the rugged highlands, the lush lowlands – Myanmar’s stunning landscapes are truly breathtaking From the snow-covered rugged Himalayas in the north to the pristine deep blue waters in the south, whilst the connoisseur of culture and history will find pagodas, an array of vibrant festivals and more than 135 tribes.
