“This is Burma. It is quite unlike any place you know about.” – Rudyard Kipling. His words still hold true. Shrouded in mystery, Myanmar has always lured those with a sense of adventure and a longing for the unknown. It was as though Myanmar was caught in a time warp as the rest of her neighbours propelled into the 21st century - until now.
Two ladies changed all that! With the improving relationship between Myanmar and the US, Hillary Clinton visited Myanmar. In the same period, a Hollywood movie featuring Michelle Yeoh as Aung San Sun Kyi hit the box office. Since then, Myanmar saw unprecedented interest from international tourists.
