There’s a new country open to tourism, thanks to its lady Prime Minister, Aung San Suu Kyi. It’s been nearly two years since Aung San Suu Kyi became one of the world’s most prominent political prisoners. After winning the majority of votes during an election in Myanmar in 1990, she was detained under house arrest for fifteen years, when the military refused to give up power. She was eventually released on 13th November 2010 and since then, things have been rapidly changing for Myanmar. The country previously known as Burma, is the largest country in Indochina and is bordered by the two giants, India and China as well as the Buddhist states of Thailand and Laos. The country is enchanting with its Buddhist culture and many temples.
But it appears that the people of Myanmar, also have a newfound interest in the rest of the world. Thousands of Burmese are now living in London, some as refugees who fled after the military took over in 1962 and some working as doctors or students. Although there is no specific area in London for the Burmese (such as Little India for the Indian population) many live close to the Burmese Buddhist monasteries in Hounslow, Wembley and Colindale.
Myanmarese Escorts also live in London and are a fascination from this relatively unknown country and they could act as your very own guide, showing you the best places to eat, for that authentic Burmese taste. Myanmar’s food has strong influences with its neighbouring countries, India, China and Thailand and its cuisine is a delight to the tastebuds.
Mandalay in Edgware Road offers this underrated cuisine at bargain prices. As a cafe and a teahouse, you can sample traditional food such as meat and vegetarian curries, fritters and salads. At Mums House in Turnpike Lane, you can buy Burmese food and products to take home and make yourself, in the comfort of your own home. Although their delicious desserts may tempt you into staying.
A Myanmarese escort would compliment your Burmese dining experience perfectly, so you need not have to even visit the country, to get a taste of what it has to offer. But if it’s more culture that you’re after, then a trip to the British Museum or Victoria and Albert Museum will satisfy your curiosity. They have a vast selection of Buddhas and Burmese items on display which even includes an impressive 19th-century Buddha.
The London Burmese monasteries are the place to go for cultural activities and events and Myanmarese escorts can escort you to the many festivities that take place within the year. Or even to the other Burmese social centre, outside the country’s embassy which brings the Burmese culture together. Myanmar is full of history and promise, and is the 40th largest country in the world, and although recently changing its name in 1989, many still refer to the country as Burma. But with its peaceful religion, delicious food and welcoming people, this country will continue to fascinate and grow.
