Formerly known as Burma, Myanmar is a mystery to most of the world, but it won’t stay that way for long. The southeast Asian country has recently become more accessible to travellers, however traditional ways of life still endure. Mobile phone coverage, ATMS and Internet access are hard to come by, but travellers are rewarded with a diverse country populated by more than 100 ethnic groups, which shows little influence from the outside world. As censorship is relaxed and the country moves towards democracy, western businesses are eager to find new markets in Myanmar. Much like Cuba, Myanmar is a destination you’ll want to visit sooner rather than later.
