"Should you really visit this..." Myanmar (Burma) Tourist Trap Tip by TeDMe

<font color = olive>Should you really visit this country?


I am glad you asked :) Some people I talked to raised the issue of …should we really visit Burma. The point is that by visiting in a way we may support the military rulers of Burma.

I am not sure what the answer is but I know that there is a question. I think awareness is a key. Until I visited I knew almost nothing about the place and the challenges the Burmese face today. Now I am glad that at least I am aware. Being aware makes me think how I, moi, can help.
