caitinho has indicated that this thread is about Myanmar


I'm brazilian, planing a trip to Laos and Myanmar next october 2008.

Can anybody help, answering if problems of safety exist for a trip in that country?

Thank you !

I found Myanmar to be one of the safest places i've been to in SEA - that, and Laos (Singapore aside). I just feel that with the cyclone that affected most of southern Myanmar, maybe this might not be an ideal time to visit, but safety wise you should have no concerns - just take the usual precautions and you'll be fine.

I agree with Itinerant - I found Myanmar extremely safe so I don't think you should have any worries about that. It might be worth checking the situation in terms of the cyclone though in case there is anything you should be aware of.

It's an amazing country so have a great time!
