Myanmar’s culture is very rich with heavy Chinese and Indian influences that mix with extravagant local traditions. Temples and Stupas abound in this region and you can clearly see the mark of Theravadan Buddhism across the land, even in the most isolated and tiny villages.
The Bamar are the largest ethnic group in Myanmar and it is from this group’s name that we get Burma, the old British name of the country.
You really do have to visit this country to fully see how friendly and welcoming the people are, to understand and appreciate how they have suffered years of oppression and observe how their passion for religion and independence has become something that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
