Mingalaba Myanmar (That's Burmese for "Hello"... obviously)
Where do I begin? Well I guess we can start about a 130 years ago, when Myanmar (then called Burma, the name was changed to Myanmar in 1989, it is pronounced “Me-Yan-Mar”) was first made one of many British colonies. It was not until 1948 that Burma became independent from the British. In 1962 the military staged a coup and Burma lived under military rule until 2011.
So that brings us to today, Myanmar is an incredibly beautiful and diverse country that still is extremely authentic, mainly because of little western influence. Since 2011 the country has become slightly more developed; larger buildings line streets, there is Wi-Fi in the airport (Wi-Fi is super rare, internet for that matter is not very good, it exists, but isn’t strong).
Fun fact: Yangon (The former Burmese capital) just got it’s first western fast food chain a month ago, it’s no surprise to anyone who lives or has ever traveled in Asia, that it was a KFC (seriously, people love fried chicken here)
