Breathtaking world wonders wait in time-warped Myanmar – Myanmar visa online
. Formerly known as Burma, this almost forgotten ancient corner of Southeast Asia yields a concentration of Buddhist pagodas and monasteries festooned with maroon robed monks and delightful nuns in pink. There are artisanal villages still navigated by ox and horse drawn packs and there are genuinely warm and welcoming those who’ve stayed largely uncorrupted by mass tourism and fervent capitalism – for the time being.
The future is now for Myanmar – a nation that has emerged after a long hibernation under a military dictatorship, and is now on the tenuous path to democracy and full of exuberance. Myanmar’s”new-ness” is in part why it is now the destination du jour: bringing everybody from Barrack Obama to international capitalists after a piece of the pie, to travellers and adventurers far and broad eager to discover new lands .
Myanmar is re-discovering itself and changing fast, speeding to catch up to the 21st century. For tourists this is both good and cause for concern. The great charm of the country, or good deal of it, rests in its old world allure. Modernization has its own price, and while the influx of funds means better infrastructure in the functions, it also means higher costs. Resort prices have in just two decades tripled in several cases, and price hikes will not stop until sufficient new resorts come online.
