Myanmar?s Golden Age dates back to the 11th century when King Anawrahta united the whole country into the First Myanmar Empire in Bagan. The Bagan Empire encompassed the entire Menam valley in Thailand and lasted about 250 years, before it collapsed with the invasion of the Mongols under the leadership of Kublai Khan in the 13th century. The Second Myanmar Empire founded by King Bayinnaung, in the middle of the 16th century. King Alaungpaya founded the Third Myanmar Empire in 1752. It was during the zenith of the Konbaung dynasty, when the British colonized Myanmar. Myanmar became a sovereign state on January 4, 1948, after gaining independence from British.

Dos and don'ts.



Reciprocal respect is highly valued among the cultural disparities. No matter how fast the process of globalization is getting in momentum, East and West are still embracing their own characters. To bridge the gap, understanding and knowing the alien is useful. To understand and to know the alien, it is advisable to follow the dos and don't in another hemisphere. Some advice as follow?

- Shoes and socks are to be off before entering any religious and sacred compound.
- Woman are not allowed to enter some religious compound.
- Clothing has to be in decent manner in pagodas.
- Taking pictures or video taping of strategic places (bridges, military stations, etc.) is
  not allowed.
- Antique is not allowed to take out.
- Entrance fee has to be paid at every historical/culturally significant place.

We highly appreciate as you value the custom of another hemisphere and blend yourself locally. More fun to be with us then.
