Tourism takes off at Inle Lake, Myanmar — and so do related problems

Tourism takes off at Inle Lake, Myanmar — and so do related problems | Travel to Myanmar | Scoop.it
Tourism has skyrocketed in Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, since opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was released in 2010 after 20 years of house arrest. There is so much demand for beds that hotels cannot be built fast enough, leading to shoddy, ill-planned development. Lands are bulldozed with impunity, temples are poorly restored and diesel-fueled vehicles pollute the air in the rush to capitalize on the demand.

Then + Now in Myanmar

Then + Now in Myanmar | Travel to Myanmar | Scoop.it
I first visited Burma, now Myanmar, in the spring of 1966, when I was 18. It was a few years after the coup d'état; most foreigners had been kicked out of the country, and the government was not welcoming visitors. I fell instantly in love. Even though the ruling military regime was one of the harshest in the world, the people I met were gracious and generous. I wanted to write a book--anything that could get me back there. But I haven't had the occasion to return until this year.
