That's a good point. Why are all the photos gone?

The city looks beautiful. It's sad that the country lacks human rights though.

The city IS beautful. The whole country is beautiful. So rich in natural beauty, tradition, and material wealth.
For example the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon is covered with more than 13.000 golden tiles, they weight more than 60 tons of pure gold, the orb at the top has more than 5000 diamonds with a size of up to 76 carat for a single diamond, along with over 2000 other gemstones.

I experienced nothing but kindness there. People are generally happier there than in the Western countries. It seems that politic is not relevant when it comes to Happiness, at least this counts for Myanmar.

Some amazing views here. Thank you very much, mibome, it's a great pleasure to see more of this mysterious but seemingly very lovely country. Buddhist tradition seems so much more sincere and profound than the traditional Judeo-Christian sects in the West and Islam elsewhere. It doesn't have all that annoying ignorance, hate and "we're right, you're wrong" attitude towards everyone else. For that being in a Buddhist country feels so nice, welcoming and stress-free.

As for the "human rights" Nightsky has mentioned. I don't think this is the right end to start looking for the reasons of the country's miserable economic situation. It is economic mismanagement and lack of competence in Myanmar's government and not the "human rights" per se which causes the problems. It is rather sad that our media is portraying only things that it wants so distorting the picture and artificially creating the "heroes" and "martyrs" (I mean the dissident Mrs. Suu Kyi). But I hope one day we'll see Myanmar rising its head up like Thailand and now Vietnam.

Their deep Buddhist believe and their strong social embedding into family and neighbourhood give them a quality of life that we are missing in our Western countries.
Also: they keep their national identity alive by keeping their traditions. You will not find a 7/Eleven at every corner like you do in Thailand, nor any McDonalds. Most people wear their traditional clothes, the Longhis, and put on Thanaka wood as sun blocker and cosmetic.

I think the biggest value of a country is its national heritage in the form of its history and tradition and many Asian countries are losing their identity with the same speed as the skyscrapers rise. They are making the same mistakes that we did in the past.

The economic situation in Myanmar is not only because of the lack of competence in Myanmar's government but because of the embargoes. For example they are running pre-war cars there. A 25 year old Toyota is worth 25 Thousand Dollars because of the lack of car imports. All imports into the country are through China and Thailand. I spoke with many people in Myanmar. None was too worried about Politics. Many things I read in Western newspapers are always negaitve about Myanmar. In reality, people there worry about the same every-day things as we do. They are not attached to politics. What is the situation in our Western countries? Do we identify with our Governments? I do not. My Government is completely detached from its (German) people. They (the politicians) only deal with their big business partners, with lobbyists, all government action is always in favour for big business and always against the People. Most of all our politicians prime focus is to greedily enrich themselves. So far I do not see a real difference to the attitudes of Myanmar generals. My own countrie's politicians decide themselves about the money they get. There is no instance that can stop them. And they get a lot (A LOT) of money.
