Ask a traveller and you shall be surprised to know that Myanmar has become a hot pick for people exploring Southeast Asia. From its decades of isolation and remoteness, Myanmar is fast emerging and opening itself to public, foreigners and tourists. On a rapid transition spree, Myanmar has come off since its harsh military rule days and is growing into a country free from oppression. For travellers and explorers, the country is enriched with several eye-opening sites – be it the ancient temples or the majestic rivers, the floating gardens or the traditional teak villages. In this fast developing world, there is a strong sense of old Orient in Myanmar wherein people still practice Buddhism as a way of life. Though the country is opening up the 21st century stigmas, its traditional way of life is barely intruded by the same. And helping keep its culture and traditions strongly rooted but at the same time taing a step towards modernity and contemporary are its leaders, dynamic and strong, who are slowly paving way for Myanmar’s transition into a new government since 2012. Htin Kyaw is the incumbent President of the country who serves both as the head of the state and the government.
