Where is Myanmar? Where is Burma?

As you are interested in Myanmar, the same topic I have been interested in. If you talk about the current location, it is at the south of China, the west of Thailand and the east of India. Currently it seems to be an open country under the president, “Thein Sein”. You can travel there and have the adventures and visit the Buddhism style architecture.

I went to Myanmar for 3 times, you can visit my Flickr gallery and look around before making a decision.

Where is Myanmar and where is Burma?

Burma is in Myanmar. “Burma” refers to the land of Barma, a race living in Myanmar. Before now, the government named the country, “Burma”, because most people in the country are Barma. After that other races did not need that name, so the government changes the name of the country to be, “Myanmar”. The meaning of Myanmar is mother, but in my opinion, it sound like Mon combines with Burma, which is a good meaning.

The most popular topics we can see people talk about Myanmar today are:
♦ Democracy
♦ Military Government
♦ Aung San Suu Kyi
**You can read some other post about Myanmar by me at this link

I also heard people talked gay in Myanmar. Some gay people like to visit Myanmar. That may be because the men have to wear “Sarong” which seems like skirt for the western people.
