[It] provides overviews of tourist-friendly areas of the country as well as transportation advice, suggested itineraries for independent travelers and useful travel tips on everything from visas to SIM cards. The site addresses both leisure and business travelers, and its listings of accommodations are comprehensive... the site doesn’t gloss over the difficulties of travel in Myanmar...'
