The authentic burmesian world

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.
