The ex English Burma is a great nation few more than the double one of Italy with over 45 million inhabitants and therefore with a density of only 52 abs / Kmq.
It is a socialist republic with unique party, commanded dictatorially by a Military Junta by 1988, that it has been persisting for years in the violation of the human rights and in the repression of the ethnic minorities.
What a pity, because it is a beautiful nation, with the most interesting city, Yangon, embellished from numerous pagodas (for example Sule, 46 mt tall and and the amazing Shwedagon) and with many other beautiful cities as Mandalay, Lake Inle area and the sacred site of Bagan.
Very interesting the numerous villages on pile-dwelling and the coastal belt of the narrow cimosa that pushes it toward south, accompanied by the Islands of the archipelago of Mergui.
