January 2014 - Burma Myanmar

27 Janvier 2014 , Rédigé par Karine

Everyone said 'You have to go to Burma before it becomes too touristic'. The country home to Aung San Suu Kyi, Peace Nobel Prize, has opened its door to tourism officially around 2008 and all the people I knew who went there loved it. It was untouched, authentic, no internet, no exposure to the outside world, people were genuine ...In short I had my expectations high and when I came and saw we had wifi everywhere (we even found one free and sponsored in a major pagoda), monks with Iphones and Ipads, coaches and buses full of Italians, Russians and/or French tourists, kids running around saying to you 'One dollar' in five different languages, I realized we came too late. But it is still a place to visit. You have beautiful mountains, countryside, city and beaches to cover. Food is good, rum is cheap and prices are still reasonable (hotels have doubled in 3 years but street food is still the same price for all). Plus the density and the driving is not as crazy as India or Thailand. So if you never went to South East Asia, Burma now called Myanmar, is a good place to start.
