I often get emails from friends and friends of friends asking about traveling to Burma. So when I saw this, and I have seen a few of these and the ones I haven’t, I have heard are wonderful, I thought I would share.
I highly recommend seeing Burma as it changes and transforms but with a couple of caveats. First, it is not a country well set up for tourists, especially those who can’t, or don’t want to spend a fortune. There is no backpacking mentality, very few great small hotels and it’s difficult to get around on your own. This new site might also help some.
Also, I highly recommend buying and using Lonely Planet no matter what your budget is, it’s well-regarded as the best around.
