Country Myanmar: Golden Land on Earth

Myanmar is located right at the cross roads of China and India and has vast Indian Ocean for its view. It is one of the biggest countries of South East Asia blessed with diverse culture. It is surrounded by mountains and thus, has a good landscape to watch. The country stretches from Eastern Himalayan range till the southern Andaman Sea islands.

Accommodation Options
Myanmar has various convenient as well as luxurious accommodation options ranging from five star hotels to intimate boutique hotels, youth hostel, family guest houses, stunning mountain resorts as well as beach resorts. Budget travellers can choose to stay in budget lodges and family guest houses located in major centres of the country.

Myanmar’s history dates back to 300 BC when the Mon dynasty existed in the civilization. The country’s most ancient cities like Mongamo, Sri Ksetra, Binnaka and Halingyi were founded around 7the century by the Pyu community. Bagans who came into power towards the middle of the 8th century collapsed in the 10th century. Lack of defendable borders brought around various kingdoms like Bagan, Inwa and Bago.

Popular Places
Shwedagon Pagoda, being the oldest pagoda, is the most popular tourist destination in Myanmar. It is believed to have layer of 30-60 tons of gold and has the best collection of craft and arts.

Bagan is another place that has around 2000 pagodas spread over the land. It was the ancient capital of Burma and has become popular due to its magnificent pagodas and glorious temples. Inle Lake is located amidst the mountains and is well known for the image created by rowing boats.

The Golden Rock Pagoda is the Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda and is believed to have been put on the pillar some thousands year ago, by a powerful hermit, for worship. This place is good to visit during the winters.

Getting Around
Popular modes of transport to go around Myanmar are inland waterways and airline. Inland waterways and sea transport are the most popular means of transportation – both internally as well as externally. Modern times have made airline travel little feasible. However, the air travel is restricted to few cities and countries. Road transport and rail transport is virtually nonexistent in Myanmar – given that it is surrounded by mountain ranges.

Places of Entertainment
Although Myanmar’s entertainment is by no means comparable to that of Thailand, it is not that bad either. Nightlife in Myanmar kept alive through cultural shows, discos and nightclubs and bars can be very much matched to that of Kuala Lumpur or Phuket. Various theatre activities and cinemas can catch interest of young people. Fun and entertainment loving people will be attracted towards the Karaoke entertainment and dinner shows hosted at exotic restaurants.

Kyat (MMK) is the official currency of Myanmar. However, the currency is quite volatile and illiquid and it is not possible to buy or sell dollars or do trading in that currency. Although the exchange rate between one Myanmar Kyat and a US Dollar equals 6.5, trading is not possible at this value as it does not reflect the current exchange rate and news. This makes Myanmar currency problematic and unconvertible.
