The People of Myanmar
The people of Myanmar have been through some very difficult times, and they are still in the process of gaining their strength and rebuilding their lives; but the oppression and injustice has not broken their spirit.
Our three weeks in Myanmar were very memorable thanks to the people. We have been to several countries around the world, and have come across friendly people from all over, but the Burmese people have been the most friendly to date.
We never once felt like we were going to get ripped off or scammed in any way.
They were curious, and talkative, always wanting to help, feeding us delicious food, and very kind as well.
There was no shortage of smiles everywhere we went. Many times we would have people come up to us and thank us for visiting their country and they hope we have a good time.
We loved our time in Myanmar and would definitely head back before it turns into a very popular tourist destination.
