VÃ©ro, myself and four friends are off to Myanmar tomorrow. If possible I’ll try to post something from there, but internet access is limited. Since this will be my first trip to Asia, I’m rather nervous about what to expect 🙂 Here’s an extract from the Myanmar Tourism Promotion Board site:
Myanmar sits at the crossroads of Asiaâ€™s great civilisations of India and China, and looks out onto the vast Indian Ocean next to Thailand. One of South East Asiaâ€™s largest and most diverse countries, Myanmar stretches from the sparkling islands of the Andaman Sea in the south right up into the Eastern Himalayan mountain range.
To this day Myanmar remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world. A land of breathtaking beauty and charm yet only recently emerging into the modern world. What can the casual visitor therefore expect upon arrival, and why should one embark on such a journey in the first place?
Myanmar offers all the traditional delights of Asia in one fascinating country. Virgin jungles, snow-capped mountains and pristine beaches, combined with a rich and glorious heritage spanning more than two thousand years. Spectacular monuments and ancient cities attest to a vibrant culture that is still home to 135 different ethnic groups.
See you soon and take care everybody !
