The diversity: Two weeks ago in undiscovered Myanmar and now cruising along the second busiest shipping route to Singapore. Varying vibrant cultures and the friendliness of Asia. Myanmar/Burma. (Cruising area) This area has literally only just opened its borders and there is so much unexplored beautiful territory. As an example of how closed off this area was to the rest of the world: There were only three places in the entire world that did not allow the conglomerate of the Coca-Cola brand in their market, North Korea, Cuba and Myanmar; Now Myanmar have only just opened their borders to this kind of international business and tourism comes with it.
The years to come will be the chance to explore an environment that is truly untainted by tourism. Take advantage of this opportunity to discover the untapped world of Myanmar and the surrounding region with Northern Sun.
