Myanmar will hold by-elections tomorrow, with the country’s democracy icon Ms Aung San Suu Kyi running as a candidate. The country is slowly opening up to political reform, tourism and more foreign investments. The country, located between India, China and Thailand, has been isolated from the international community after decades of military rule. The Enquirer releases some glimpses of the nation once seen as the Southeast Asia’s most promising country back in the 1950s.
These photographs are taken on a field trip to Myanmar organised by the NTU Environmental Endeavour (EE2). More photographs can be found at the author’s photo blog.
