Formerly known as Burma, Myanmar is one of the poorest, but at the same time one of the most captivating countries of Southeast Asia, and these two seemingly opposed attributes are in fact connected.
Traveling to Myanmar involves not only a journey into a different geographic region, but also an excursion into another time. How far back into the past one travels depends on the destinations chosen within the country. For instance, if you compare the Burmese capital Yangon to the Thai capital Bangkok, you may be taken back 30 or 40 years into the past. However, a visit to the country’s hill tribes can equal a trip into the middle ages!

Myanmar is the traditional name both of the country and of its people. The British called the country “Burma” following colloquial usage and coined the name “Burmese” for the people.
The land was also known as Suvannabhumi, “Golden Land” in ancient times, and today, with its rich natural resources and diversity of attractions, it still deserves to be called the Golden Land.
