Land of a thousand smiles or Golden Land Myanmar

I am one blogger from Myanmar. I have been to post this by introducing my mother land as my first step of joining in Topics from 192 countries blog.
Myanmar occupies a large area of land between two of the world's most heavily populated countries- China and India, covering about 676,500 square kilometers equivalent to the size of United Kingdom and France combined.

Based on the comments by foreign travelers who have visited Myanmar, it is one of the safest countries on the planet to travel. Its natural resources and exotic beauty is a draw card for tourists to come and take documentary pictures of photogenic scenes throughout the nation.
The south-east Asian country, also known as the " Golden Land", is rich in historical heritage sites, unspoilt shady beaches, sustained traditional culture, and mysterious lakes.
Populated with 54million, Myanmar has been described as an anthropologist's dream by some writers as it possesses such a great diversity of ethnic groups with distinct dresses, customs and traditions.

While the largest group of Myanmar live mainly in the rivers, valleys and plains, many of the smaller ethnic minorities reside in the mountains and hills, increasingly venturing into the urban centers for better job opportunities and livelihood.

Yangon previously known as Rangoon has become a major business center after the government designate Pyinmana, a town in central Myanmar, as the country's capital later name Nay Pyi Daw, to which all the administrative departments have recently moved.
About Myanmar, have you ever been to read
George Orwell's Burmese Days? In this book, you can see a picture of young Buddhist nuns, dressed in pink with sweet and genuine smiles on their faces and another picture of two young Buddhist monks, sitting in front of a temple inside the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, one of the most peaceful and sacred places.

The people of Myanmar, whose genuine smiles are so beautiful; and whose smiles had given you so much joy and happiness on your trip to Myanmar. Here belows are some photos of Myanmar.

Proud to be Myanmar:
