The country known as Burma has been in existence for centuries. Naturally, she has been going through up and downs of time along the course of history. Under the leadership of the national heroes, however, the country was usually opulent and peaceful.
In the past, Burma was organized as a strong union in the early 11th century (i.e. Bagan period) by King Anawrahta. It is generally referred to as the first union of Burma. Also in the middle of the 16th century, King Bayinnaung established the second union of Burma that used to be one of the mightiest countries in Asia then. Burma was thirdly unified in 1752 by King Alaungpaya, the founder of the last dynasty of Burma.
On 12 February 1947, all the nationalities were united again. This event is a milestone in the history of Burma. Accordingly, she was able to regain the national unity at least in principle and thus was looked upon as the fourth union. However, she attained the genuine union only in the late 1960 (i.e. nearly 2 decades after independence in 1948) when those internal and external dangers were practically overcome.
Myanmar, known as Burma until 1989, comprising seven states and seven divisions, is one of the most attractive places in Southeast Asia. Covering an area of 261,789 sq. miles, she is the largest country in the region. The population is estimated at 44 million. The coastal districts are usually referred to as Lower Myanmar where as the inland districts are called Upper Myanmar.

Place to see
Pathein Myanmar For Myanmar country's fourth largest city, Pathein seems compact and small in Myanmar. Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy, Pathein receives few visitors so you're likely to draw lots of smiles and curious stares. Most Myanmar travelers only stop off on their way to the beache Ayeyarwaddy Myanmar on the west coast, yet the Myanmar workshops that produce colourful, hand-painted parasols, along with the shady, tree-lined village leanes to the northeast of the Pathein, Myanmar market, are worth a stroll, as is the bustling riverside road. Situated on the eastern bank of the Myanmar Pathein River in the Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy Delta, about 120 km west of Yangon, Pathein is the most important delta port outside the capital, despite its distance from the sea. It is surrounded by a major rice growing area that produces the best rice available in Myanmar. The growth of the delta Myanmar trade, particularly rice exports, has contributed to a general air of prosperity in Pathein city.
Shwemokhtaw Paya In the centre of pathein, Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy Division near the Pathein river front, looms the golden, bell shaped stupa at Shwemokhtaw Paya. The Myanmar stupa's main shape has remained the same since samodagossa's reign, although the changing of the decorative hti(umbrellalike decorated top)has increased the high to its present 46.6m. The current Hti consists of a topmost layer make from 6.3kg of solid gold, a middle tier of pure sliver and a bottom tier are gilded and reportedly embedded with a total of 829 diamond fragments, 843 rubies and 1588 semiprecious stones in Myanmar Shwemokhtaw Paya.
Chaungtha Beach Myanmar one of the Beach Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy, 40 km west of the Pathein on the bay of Bengal, is a chance to experience what the Myanmar middle class does on Myanmar vacation. Chaungtha beach gets especially crowded on holiday weekends when local tourists are ferried in by the Myanmar busload. As western beaches go, the sand and water aren't as pristine as nearby NgweSaung or Ngapali in Myanmar. At low tide the very wide beach Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy has a touch of the muddy delta's look though there is a gorgeous long, white sand beach only a 15 minute walk north of town Chaungtha where you're likely to have the entire expanse to yourself save for the rare local or other foreigners of Myanmar scouting for privacy and a little shade. The Myanmar village of Chaungtha itself is a few blocks of guesthouses, restaurants and souvenir shops selling T shirts.
Ngweasaung Myanmar This beautiful white sand beach, beach Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy also knows as sliver beach in Myanmar, facing the bay of Bengal is the nearly stages of being developed and marketed as a rival destination to Ngapali Beach further north. Several top end Myanmar bungalow style resorts are ready firmly established and several more are in the works. And few Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy accommodation options cater for people on small budgets or Myanmar local vacationers. Ngweasaung beach stretches much longer and is more pristine than nearby Chaungtha beach. Myanmar village itself now sits roughly half way along the length of the 14.5 km stretch of coastline Myanmar government ordered it moved lock, stock and barrel about 100 m. Several of Myanmar resorts can arrange day strips to an elephant camp halfway between Ngwe Saung and Pathein, Myanmar Ayeyarwaddy.
