Living with the locals in rural Myanmar | Travel Feature | Rough Guides.

My wife and I were in Myanmar (Burma) in December 2012, and can relate to many of the descriptions although we used hotels. Since World War II, the population of Myanmar have had an unbelievably hard time. Some say the country is forty years behind its neighbours like Thailand and Vietnam. The country lacks infrastructure and for tourists their are many challenges, including food hygiene. However, the country is unbelievably beautiful and the people are very friendly.

If you interested in seeing a selection of our best blogs on Myanmar please open this link [once you’ve read the first article, keep paging down and open the link at the bottom left hand side entitled “older posts” – this will provide some stunning photos and detailed descriptions].
