View a Map of Myanmar

Myanmar or Burma, officially the Union of Myanmar is a country in Southeast Asia. It lies on the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea coast with Bangladesh and India to the west, China to the north, and Laos and Thailand to the east.

Myanmar's culture is largely a result of heavy Indian influences intertwined with local traditions and some Chinese influences. This can be seen in the various stupas and temples throughout the country, which bear a distinct resemblance to those in northern India. Like neighbouring Thailand, Theravada Buddhism is the single largest religion, and even some of the most remote villages will have a village temple for many to pray. Other religions which exist in smaller numbers include Christianity, Islam and Hinduism.

While the Bamar form the majority, Myanmar is also home to many minority ethnic groups and nationalities which have their own distinct cultures.

Generally speaking, most Burmese people are incredibly friendly and polite, and will do their best to make you feel welcome in their country.
