Myanmar or Burma, which name is correct?

The ruling military party changed its name from Burma to Myanmar in 1989, a year after thousands were killed in the suppression of a popular uprising.  – Source (BBC). 

Is it safe or even ethical to visit Myanmar?

Travel in most parts of Myanmar is safe. According to Smartraveller.gov.au visitors to Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake should use normal safety precautions. 

However, if you would like to visit Rakhine State a re-consideration for your needs of travel should be defined.

The Overall rating for the country is “high degree of caution”.

It’s worth knowing that’s the equivalent advice given for touristic places like Thailand and Bali!

As Myanmar is a Religious & Culturally Mahayana Buddhist country, like its relatives in Cambodia and Thailand,

its people practice the norms and traditions associated with this local religion. For Details on staying safe see:
