Advice for first time travellers to Burma/Myanmar who are weighing the pros and cons of visiting the country. —— Travelfish.org
As the article states this is a personal decision that each traveler must consider as well research before going. By visiting, you’ll be able to support small, family-owned businesses and the money is welcome particularly from those who make the effort to try and put it in the right hands. As travellers you’ll be presented with an opportunity to better acquaint yourselves with the situation on the ground. Hopefully with more visitors to the country this will help in some way to further open up the country for travel, in as positive a way as possible. The other side of the coin is the ethics of visiting a country that still holds political prisoners, forced labour, and has lots of human rights issues. So do your research and decide for yourself!
