Myanmar is still a developing country that is striving hard to enter the 21st century. Many parts of the country that were off-limits to the tourists can be explored now by making Myanmar one of the hottest tourist places on the Southeast Asia travel list. Myanmar is still a rural nation which follows traditional values at heart and if youre planning to visit Myanmar then these are a few things you should know before you do.
1.To get a tourist visa to enter Myanmar is easier than ever. You dont need a proof for an onward travel when youre applying; also its very quick and easy. The visa is valid for 28 days. So take advantage of your time to travel slowly, meet the local people and learn about their culture.
2.Compared to other South-east Asian countries the hotels in Myanmar are very expensive. The tourist business has triggered this development but the process is very slow. If youre staying there for more time then it's best that you book the accommodation in advance especially in the main areas. If you are spending so much money on the accommodation then the trip is worth it.
3.The internet connection in Myanmar is either very slow or Non-Existent. The Internet in Myanmar arrived in 2000 yet it is still in its developing stages. The specific websites such as YouTube and Gmail has been blocked because its not widely used. Many restrictions were lifted but the network is still very slow and underdeveloped so you have to be very patient enough when uploading your latest shots on Instagram. Dont expect to have any internet connection and then you wont be disappointed so when you are in Myanmar drop your phone and enjoy the views.
4.Travellers do not come to Myanmar to party and drink but there so much more to see and do. Theres not much of western style entertainment outside hotels except a few. If you are looking for a local culture in the evenings then head to a tea shop or a beer hall or a night market.
5.People in Myanmar are very genuine, friendly and most hospitable people. It's best to engage in conversations and get to know the people. A wraparound skirt worn by men and women called longyi is the traditional Burmese dress. Women fold the dress over and secure it at the side and men wear it in the front.
6.If you find any red patches on the road or the wall dont worry it's not blood, its the colour of betel nuts. These chewing leaves are with full of betel nuts, spices and a pinch of tobacco. These red teeth is a national pastime. These are sold everywhere and highly addictive and they not only stains the teeth red but is spat out on the floor when its finished.
7.The makeup that the Burmese people apply is called thanaka which is made up of a finely ground bark of the Thanaka tree, it is also said that this substance is a natural sunblock and reduces the loss of moisture.
