    schema:description ""In the dark for decades under the oppressive rule of the military junta, in the spring of 2012 Myanmar finally glimpsed the first rays of a democracy that may well prove to be permanent. Christine Nilsson has travelled extensively throughout the country to record the jubilant, newly accessible country, as much for its residents as for its visitors. As well as the renowned and stunning archaeological features, she also highlights less well-known but equally magical places, such as the Golden Triangle inhabited by the Shan and their tattooed women. She presents her own reactions to the country rather than a comprehensive guidebook. The text is in two parts: the first a description of the different parts of the country covering Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, Inle Lake, Pindaya, Mrauk U and the south as well as an account of the amazing influence of Aung San Suu Kyi on the opening up of the country. The second part is full of useful information for the traveller on hotels, restaurants, shops and festivals together with details on transport, holiday companies, the cuisine, etiquette, what to bring home and other essential facts. In between is a stunning portfolio of photos revealing the charm of the people, the wondrous temples, the rural way of life and the part that religion plays in everyday life."--Publisher description."@en ;
