Myanmar is opening to the world

Myanmar is opening to the world

Myanmar, also known as Burma, has preserved the charm of its traditional culture after nearly 50 years of military dictate.

After 2011, when a new democratic government was elected, the country is opening more and more to the world and thus, the numer of people willing to get familiar with its unique culture is increasing. From October this year, Myanmar eases the visa-issuing procedure adding 24 new countries to its system for online visas. You can check here which countries are the lucky ones: http://evisa.moip.gov.mm/. The process is fast, it only takes 5 days. Visa is received by mail and must be taken on trip along with the passport.

Luckily, the pace of changes is not head-blowing and the little joys from the trip in Myanmar are still available. For example, boat trip along Ayerawadi River by dhow boat, swim in the crystal clear waters of Bengal Bay or hill tribe trek in Shan Highlands having the paths almost only for you. The essence of the adventure is no doubt the encounter with local people who are kind, curious, enthisiastic, smiling and welcoming. Now is the time to see their world!
