Should you go to Myanmar?

The decision as to whether or not to travel to Myanmar is best made after an appraisal of the pros and cons of such a visit.

Reasons to go to Myanmar

  • Tourism remains one of the few industries to which ordinary Burmese have access. Any reduction in tourism means a reduction in local income-earning opportunities
  • It is becoming increasingly possible to travel in Myanmar without staying in government-owned hotels, using government-owned transport etc
  • Many pro-democracy activists within Myanmar itself argue that sanctions are counter-productive, and that economic development can lead to political liberalisation
  • Keeping the Burmese isolated from international witnesses to internal oppression may only cement the government's control

If You Decide to go to Myanmar

In order to maximise the positive effects of a visit among the general populace, while minimising support of the government, follow these simple tactics:

  • Stay at private, locally owned hotels and guesthouses
  • Avoid package tours connected with Myanmar Travel & Tours
  • Avoid MTT-sponsored modes of transport, such as the Yangon-Mandalay Express trains, the MTT ferry between Mandalay and Bagan, and Myanma Airways (MA) flights
  • Buy handicrafts directly from the artisans, rather than from government shops
  • Avoid patronising companies involved with the military-owned Myanmar Economic Holdings. Companies with solid links to the Tatmadaw (armed forces) are often called Myawadi or Myawaddy
  • Write to the Myanmar government and to the Myanmar embassy in your country expressing your views about the human-rights situation there.
