INTRODUCING MYANMAR
Local Name: မြန်မာ
Other Name(s): Burma
Slightly smaller than Texas, Myanmar occupies the Thailand, Cambodia portion of the Indo-China peninsula with India to the northwest and China to the northeast. Bangladesh, Laos, and Thailand are also neighbours. The Irrawaddy River in the south not only provides a fertile delta but also contains a network of interconnecting canals and nine principal river mouths.

Myanmar lies at the crossroads of Asia's greatest civilizations, China and India. Before 1989, Myanmar is known under different names: Suvanabhumi, Bermah, and Burma. It was well known for its ancient archaeology and rich culture. Myanmar stretches from the islands of the Andaman Sea in the south, right up into the Eastern Himalayan mountain range, giving a variety of people and enriched nature.
