Re: Vintage Educational Movie

An excellent video - well worth watching. It makes you wonder where it all went wrong.

Adventure Holidays

I've read about all of the usual temples, markets and museums type of attractions. Is there anything available for the younger, more active type of person such as bungy jumping, or white water rafting? If so, can somebody point me in the right direction please?

Taxation for Tourists

What are the rules for taxation of tourists. If I spend money in shops, is there any refund of local taxes when I leave Myanmar?

Re: Timetable for The BALLOON FESTIVAL, Taunggyi

I love hot air balloons. Do they offer tourist trips during the festival? If so, what does it cost? How many balloons take part in the festival?

Are The Police Tourist Friendly?

How do the local police force react to foreigners? Is it a Gestapo type setup, or does Myanmar provide a service similar to Thailand's Tourist Police?

As an example, if I lost my necklace, how easy would it be to obtain a police report for my insurance company?

Re: Burmese Cuisine

Do they have street vendors selling food in Burma in the same way as Thailand?
