Myanmar people are undoubtedly one of the most welcoming population. They are always willing to open their door to you and to let you in their everyday lives. Take part in an authentic food donation to the monks in a remote monastery, share a lunch with nuns in their nunnery, or sit in a corner to observe the evening chants of young monks. But the cultural diversity of the country also relies mainly on its inhabitants. With more than one hundred ethnic groups, Myanmar’s cultural fabric sports very different colors.
