Burma Travel Information


Myanmar Flag The Union of Myanmar (usually unofficially known as Burma) is a Southeast Asian country. It is bordered by Bangladesh, India, Laos, the People's Republic of China, and Thailand, and has a long coastline on the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea.

As of 2009, the country had an estimated population of just over 50 million. About 4.3 million people live in the country's largest city, and former capital, Yangon (Rangoon). The next largest city is Mandalay which has a population of around 1 million. The country's third largest city is the capital (since 2005), and is brand new city, called Naypyidaw, which has a population of nearly 1 million.

Since 1962, when the military took power in a coup and adopted policies known as the "Burmese Way to Socialism", the country has been relative isolated, as well as suffering relative economic decline. Few foreigners visit the country, inward investment is limited, and many countries have placed sanctions or restrictions on trade with the country. The regime begun to encourage tourists to visit the country again since 1992, but only about 750,000 tourists visit Burma annually, and Nobel prize winning opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, has requested that tourists not visit the country.
