A Journey to Myanmar with OAT
About this blog
What a splendid surprise. Despite the oppressive government that exists there, Myanmar is very tourist friendly with comfortable accommodations, delicious food, and good transportation. The people, although quietly, are expressive of their dismay of the political and economic situation that exists there and hope that more travelers will visit and spend money to boost the economy. They also hope that exposure to foreigners, their ideas and their cultures, will further educate the Burmese to what could be in their future. The people are open and kind, but most are very poor. Should you travel there, take lots of small toiletries to pass out to the children and spend your money directly with the people as they need it so desperately.
