||The Union of Myanmar, the country formerly known as Burma, is one of the few truly unique destinations remaining in this much-traveled world. Myanmar is a poor country just recently emerging from decades of self-imposed international isolation that has preserved many of the cultural and scenic attractions that have been lost in most other Asian countries.
Over the past 10 years the quality of the hotels has vastly improved, today foreign visitors are greeted with international first class accommodations. But the temples and shrines remain unchanged, they are the foundation of life for the people of Myanmar. And the people are truly warm and hospitable. There is a gentleness to the people that is hard to describe, but will certainly touch you if you are fortunate enough to visit this incredible country.
