I look forward to sharing larger images as soon as I have put together
some more comprehensiveinformation on Burma and her struggle for democracy.
Without this balanceI fear that I may encourage people to visit the country
without acquaining themselves with the harsh reality of situation that prevails there.


Want to Learn More About Burma or Thinking about Travelling There
?

This site is not politically motivated but If Burma appeals to you as a tourist
destination, PLEASE acquaint yourself with the current situation - read about
the country, her people, problems, and struggles for democracy.
It is quite likely that when you have done this you will decide
not to visit Burma.

Regardless of where one is travelling, a basic grounding in the customs,
history and even politics of a place is a surefire way
to improve one's enjoyment whilst being there.
Travelling to any country without this is a blind excercise.
If you want an exotic holiday, please do not travel to Burma -
go to Thailand instead. If, after acquainting yourself with the situation,
you still decide to visit Burma, please do not visit on a package trip.
Too much of the money goes to the government and it's agencies.
Package holidaymakers invariably stay ingovernment sponsored / owned hotels,
travel on the (decrepit) government's airlines, railways and use state
owned tour buses.Very little money goes directly to the local populations -
the minibus owners, rickshaw drivers, small restaurant
owners and hoteliers all lose out.
There are ways of ensuring that as little of your hard currency as possible
goes directly to the state. Travelling independently is a good start.
Independent travellers are in a better position to interact freely
with local people and ensure they spend their money locally.
It is important to have a choice in a land where ordinary people do not.
Please think very carefully before you visit.
