With the recent reports of escalating unrest and military conflicts in Myanmar, many travelers are left wondering “Should I travel to Myanmar this time?”.

The military in Myanmar is having a hard time stopping rebel attacks all over the country and fixing the economy that got weaker because of the coup. On April 4th, the National Unity Government (NUG), a group of Myanmar lawmakers who left their seats after the military coup in 2021, announced that a military base in the capital city of Naypyitaw was attacked by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). However, they did not specify the type of UAV used or the extent of damage to the base. The People's Defense Force (PDF), an armed branch of the NUG, also stated that they received orders to attack two locations in Naypyitaw, one of which was an airbase. It has made the situation even more uncertain regarding the stability of the country.

In light of these events, it's important for tourists to consider alternative destinations for their travels in Southeast Asia. Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand offer vibrant cultures, stunning landscapes, and rich histories without the current security concerns present in Myanmar.
