The Republic of the Union of Myanmar, or Burma, as the nation has been known throughout history, is the second largest in Southeast country Asia. Myanmar has a long history and its greatness dates back to the early 11th Century when the first Myanmar Empire was founded in Bagan.
After this rich past in which the county was, for a short period, the largest empire in the history of Southeast Asia, the British conquered Burma in the 19th century and the country became a British colony until its independence in 1948, first as a democratic nation and then, a military dictatorship which formally ended in 2011. During The Second World War, Myanmar was occupied by the Japanese from 1942 till the return of the Allied Forces in 1945.
After a general election in 2010, the military junta was officially dissolved, and a civilian government was installed. This, along with the release of the most prominent human rights activist, Aung San Suu Kyi has improved the foreign relations of the country and has been of help in the process of opening up to foreign visitors. Much of the country is still untouched and very rich in both architectural and historic heritage and there is plenty to discover for those tourist who want to go off the beaten track.
