Myanmar is situated between India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand at the Bay of Bengal. The foothills of the Himalaya reach into the North of the country, the highest elevation is Hkakabo Razi mountain (5881m). The mainland of Myanmar between two mountain ranges is the valley of the river Irawaddy with a tropical climate. Though the rain forest is decreasing constantly most parts of the country are still tree covered. Many elephants, tigers and leopards are living there.
The name Burma was used before the country was named Myanmar in 1989. Burma became a colony belonging to British India in 1886 and an independent union in 1948. The country is rich of cultural history. It is also called the country of the pagodas and some people say here is one pagoda for every inhabitant. The city Pagan alone should have had 13.000 temples! Special for Myanmar are also the many cars older than 40 years and the railroads from the 1940s and 1950s.
