Myanmar

Burma, officially the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, has been a country open to tourism since 1995.

The tourist activity, until 2012, remained embryonic, even though the country is certainly the richest of South East Asia, in terms of tourism heritage.

Since the end of the political upheavals, the country has experienced a strong growth in tourism. It is only fair as Myanmar offers everything a tourist destination can offer: culture, landscapes, beaches, climate, encounters.

• Highlights

  • Yangon City
  • The Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangoon
  • The archaeological site of Bagan
  • The Irrawaddy
  • Mandalay
  • The Inle Lake
  • The Golden Triangle
  • The beaches of the Andaman Gulf

Myanmar is aimed at travelers who are interested in history and archeology, but also those who are fond of encounters, open to other cultures, seeking to make contact with the inhabitants ... .to those who love nature and trekking ... and lovers of idleness by the sea.

Geography

Of a rather compact form extending to the south by a long and narrow strip of land, Myanmar whose capital is Nay Pyi Taw covers an area of 678,578 km². The country stretches 1,900 km from north to south and 900 km from east to west. It is crossed by the Irrawaddy river, navigable on 1,500 km and whose vast delta is located West of Yangon.

The country lies between Laos and Thailand in the East, Bangladesh in the West and China and India in the North. A horseshoe-shaped mountainous range surrounds Myanmar with peaks of more than 5,000 meters (Hkakabo Razi) at the eastern end of the Himalayan range in the north of the country. We also discover green landscapes composed of a great diversity of fauna and flora, as forests cover a large part of the territory (more than half).

Climate

Myanmar lives by the rhythm of three seasons:

The hot and dry period: from March to May / June. The hot and humid period from May / June to September / October where rains are particularly abundant in the West of the country. The less hot and dry period from October / November to February with temperatures between 16 ° and 28 ° C during the day. The annual average temperature oscillates between 25 ° and 30 ° C at low altitude.

Population

Myanmar has more than 55 million inhabitants. There are 8 major ethnic groups divided into subgroups. The official language is Burmese, but ethnic minorities use more than 120 languages ​​and dialects. English and Chinese are also spoken.

Politics

After decades of military dictatorship, the country is now officially a Republic whose president since 2016 is Htin Kyaw, close to Aung San Suu Kyi. She now combines the functions of Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of the Cabinet of the Presidency and Councilor for the State (position created specifically for her).

The 2008 Constitution prevents her from running for the Presidency of the Union because of the foreign nationality of her children.
