Myanmar (officially the Republic of the Union of Myanmar) is still often known as Burma. Myanmar's people and history is a glorious mishmash of settlers and invaders from all fronts.
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 people to pray at.
Closed to the world at large for many years, Myanmar is a country of mystery and wonder for the more adventurous traveller.
