If I had the chance to prepare a solo trip to Southeast Asia, that’s due to other travelers and the blogs they created to share their traveler experience and give advice. If it wasn’t for other travel blogs, I would never have the chance to figure out how to do this trip and prepare a budget for it.
They are the most useful source of information if you are thinking to plan a backpacker trip on your own. I prefer to read the testimony of the ones that had already been in the place I’m heading to. To know about their experiences, how they moved from city to city, what’re their bad moments, and in this way having an idea of what to expect for my trip too.
That’s also why I created my own blog, to help other travelers getting more information about their destinations, or even helping insert an unknown destination in their travel bucket list.
That’s why today I’m sharing the traveler opinion from @withlai.
As you already know, Myanmar is my favorite country ever and as I know there aren’t that many tourists visiting, I have an interest in knowing how was their experience in the country and share with others.
Laíza shares amazing travel photos from her trips, and the ones from Myanmar enchanted me. I have asked her a few questions about this country and I would like to share with you. This way you can get to know another traveler experience in this amazing country:
What did you like most in Myanmar?
Definitely the people, the locals are all very receptive.
Would you visit Myanmar again?
Sure, there’s a lot to see in the country and I’ve seen just a little bit of so many beautiful things there. I would go back to explore the same places with a better climate (I was in rainy season) and to see new places.
What impressed you the most about the country’s culture?
I was impressed to see their history, to know how much they have suffered and still suffer from poverty and precarious conditions and yet everyone always has a smile on their face.
Would you advise your friends to visit? Why?
I would undoubtedly advise it, traveling through Myanmar is a lifetime experience. Learn cultural differences and understand that we do not have to own a lot of things to be happy. I had the feeling that they have so little but in the end, they are happy because they have everything they need. We are too ambitious.
What is your favorite country so far?
Very difficult to quote 1 only, but let’s mention the favorites:
Thailand because besides being too beautiful and cheap, Thais are the friendliest and most welcoming people I have ever seen.
Norway because of the nature that is unbeatable but the prices are very high.
The Maldives I can’t explain why. It is worth every penny to see this paradise on earth.
I share most part of Laíza’s opinion about traveler experience in Myanmar. I feel like there is no other place like this on Earth!
