"Although traveling in Burma is wonderful, it can be challenging at times. Some regions constantly get closed off due to conflicts that spark up, and the roads and transportation systems are stuck in time, just like everything else. So be prepared to spend several days hopping from one bus to another if you want to see far-off, exotic locales. Myanmar is an entirely different kind of travel experience. In a sense, it takes you back through time. Get there as soon as possible before mass tourism and development spoil it."
