people of this land are very hospitable. They are excellent hosts; you will find yourself

a most welcome guest in any Myanmar home. They love a good joke and one of their delights

is to while away the evening with friends over a pot of tea, exchanging stories and

amusing anecdotes.

experience is to learn about the people of the land and develop friendships, Myanmar is

your destination.
