Myanmar was formerly known as Burma, and it is one of the poorest countries, but at the same time, it is one of the most captivating countries in Southeast Asia.
Traveling to Myanmar involves a journey that takes you back 30 to 40 years into the past. A visit to the country’s hill tribes can equal a trip into the middle ages!
The British termed the country “Burma” following colloquial usage and coined the name “Burmese” for the people.
The land was also known as Suvannabhumi, “Golden Land” in ancient times, and today it still deserves to be called the Golden Land.
