Safe to travel?

I am looking into a trip to Yangon early 2014 which will also include Kyaikhto and Mawtamyaing. Is it safe? Do you think I should hold back from booking yet?

Myanmar has many ppl of indian background and since the riots had been under controlled, it is safe for you to visit myanmar, either you look like an indian, muslim or not.

But i suggest you always try to get update on news on myanmar, plan ur visit through an agency and use a local guide, since they will know what to do in case of emergencies.

Why should you hold back ? Myanmar as most said is very safe country and living place of many kind hearted people. I still remember some of their help during my visits..That's most memorable things about Myanmar just for me...

Don't worry, you will be safe. Have your itinerary? Howmany day you want to spend for Myanmar? Where you want to visit? How you want to go? What you want to do?Which kind accommodation you like ( high or medium or budget )?

You decide visit to Myanmar, you must book all now by Government Offical Local Agent, before 2 months you come in Myanmar.
