Myanmar is a true stronghold of tradition. While society is changing everyday, the people remain devoted to their diverse culture, which has stood the test of time.
Myanmar will enchant you with it’s golden wonders. Witness the grandeur of the Shwedagon Paya, ponder the immensity of the 4000 stupas of Bagan, and contemplate the Golden Rock at Mt Kyaiktiyo, which challenges your understanding of gravity. In this deeply reverent country, such sites are of immense societal importance, and their guardians are held in the highest regard.
In 2015, the people of Myanmar held their first democratic elections in over 50 years. Internal regulations have been lessened, which has increased outside investment for the country. Nowadays, services like phone and internet are widely available in the main cities, though modern amenities and access for foreigners is restricted in other areas of the country. Myanmar is in the beginning stages of its development and will continue to change and modernize in the years to come
