Once upon a time there was this mysterious and forbidden land in the east. A land where no man from outside countries where allowed to explore. The land of Buddhas, pagodas, and munks, where the people where controlled by the the strictly harsh goverment keeping an eye on every move. To make sure no rules where broken and if they where you would pay for it with your own life.

Luckily this is shifting an the boarders are now open. In 2012 1.million foreginers visited Burma, in 2013, 2 millions and in 2014 aprox 3.millions and still raising. By other words go before it`s to late and before it is touristified like the rest of Asia.
The people living there are very nice to tourist and they are always on alert to help or serve you. We did not see nor experience any kind of criminality or unpleasent behaviour.
As you can see in this video the children was very happy if they got your attention.
For faa aar siden var det utenkelig aa kunne ra til Burma. Landet som har et massivt utvalg av Buddhaer, pagodaer og munker. Landet har vaert strengt regulert av sterk kommunisme blant landets ledere og den millitante juntaen. Etter landet aapnet for innsyn for turister har antall besokende gaatt fra 1.million i 2012 til forventet 3.milioner i 2014.
Vi verken saa eller opplevde noe kriminellt noe gang . Og alle var veldig opptatt av aa hjelpe deg om man stod fast. Spesiellt barna elsket aa faa litt oppmerksomhet,15 sekunder i rampelyset om du vil.
Yangon is also the home of one of the worlds largest Buddhas, made it impossible to film it in one picture.
