Restricted Areas for Travelers in Myanmar2019-09-21edit Ye Naung
Myanmar is a beautiful country and also called as the Golden Land. Most of the citizens are very sociable and they are willing to help their guests. In South East Asia, Myanmar is biodiversity hotspot and naturally, you can explore many species of animals, flora and fauna in Myanmar. It is Myanmar, which has not only a lot of biodiversities; but also there are many cultural diversities and tribe customs. Diversity is pretty things, but it needs harmonious unity, not to outbreak conflicts.
On the other hand, some conflicts continue in Myanmar unfortunately, making travel to those areas dangerous and it can also be illegal. Therefore, it is really important for the foreign and local travelers to find out where you can explore safely, and where strict restrictions are in place.
The Government retains strict control over access to all parts of the country. But, the restricted areas may change frequently, as the Government conducts military actions against so-called dissident groups or insurgent groups. The Government maintains a comprehensive list of towns, cities and regions where it is permitted it travel, for the convenient of travelers.

Always do your research before venturing off-the-beaten-path in northern Myanmar.
