BURMA / MYANMAR

  • GlobeRovers Rating: 10 / 10
  • Buzz Line: "A gem - totally unspoilt by mass tourism"
  • Eagle Eye: Long skinny country with an endless coastline. Most of the country is accessible to independent travelers while some areas must be traveled with a permit and government guide. Some small areas are off-limits. Generally safe everywhere and locals are extremely friendly and helpful.
  • Hot Spots: Inle Lake and surrounding villages, Mandalay, villages far north of Mandalay, ancient temples of Bagan, a 24-hour and amazing big-boat ride down the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) river from Katha to Mandalay
  • The Low-down: Run by the military Junta - to go or not to go? Want to boycott all countries run by governments ignoring human rights - you'll have to boycott China, and many others.
  • GlobeRovers Blog: Report 1, Report 2, Report 3
  • I highly recommend the services of Min Than Htut, an independent, but very reliable tour guide based in Yangon. I used Min in January 2013 and was very impressed by his professional conduct and knowledge of Myanmar. You can reach Min at:
