Myanmar Travel and Tourism

Myanmar Flag

Union of Myanmar, is the largest country by geographical area in mainland Southeast Asia, or Indochina. The country is bordered by the People's Republic of China on the northeast, Laos on the east, Thailand on the southeast, Bangladesh on the west, India on the northwest, and the Bay of Bengal to the southwest with the Andaman Sea defining its southern periphery. One-third of Burma's total perimeter, 1,930 kilometres , forms an uninterrupted coastline. The country's culture, heavily influenced by neighbours, is based on Theravada Buddhism intertwined with local elements. Burma's diverse population has played a major role in defining its politics, history and demographics in modern times, and the country continues to struggle to mend its ethnic tensions. The military has dominated government since General Ne Win led a coup in 1962 that toppled the civilian government of U Nu. Burma remains under the tight control of the military-led State Peace and Development Council.

Naga Festival in Myanmar - Naga
Naga Festival in Myanmar Myanmar is a land of diverse ethnicity. High on the mountains of North West Myanmar are a proud group of people known to the world as Naga, one of the 135 different ethnic groups that live on Myanmar territory. Steep slopes and even deeper ravines mark the land as blue hazy mountains retreat towards the horizon. A cold wind blows out of the North during the winter months and summers are not hot in the Naga Hills. The streams, fed by monsoon rains, leap over huge boulders or hiss quietly beside quaint villages. The climate maybe harsh but for the Naga the bright lights of the city has no appeal. They would rather live a life close to nature. They are hunters first of all. A Naga legend tells that Man is born at th...
