The Beauty & Promise of Myanmar

A sunset in Myanmar

Two young English teachers, Liam Kelly and Tyler Haines, recently traveled through Myanmar (also known as Burma) on an epic adventure to document a country rich in culture and beauty, and in the midst of major political, economical, and social transformations. Considering, Myanmar just experienced a magnitude 6.8 earthquake on Sunday, November 11th – this is a country that could use some positive attention. The quake collapsed a bridge and damaged several old Buddhist pagodas, leaving many injured and 12 people feared dead.

Biut even with the recent tragedy, Myanmar still has a lot to offer. Liam and Tyler are videographers, who captured their journey, and the inspiring beauty of Myanmar in a film, to be realesed soon. Check out the teaser trailer here:

Liam Kelly and Tyler Haines are two 20-year-old South Africans who have recently completed a school term teaching English in Thailand. After completing a TESOL course in Hua and being placed in a job through Teach Explore Asia (XploreAsia, who is launching a teaching program in Myanmar), they stumbled on the idea of traveling to Myanmar.

They traveled for 2 weeks, through 2 major cities and 4 small towns, including Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, Hsipaw, Inle Lake and Namhsan.
