Before setting off on any trip, you should always do some research. Below is a list of resources I found particularly useful when researching my trips.

Singapore/Myanmar (Burma)/Thailand – 2013 – Resources.

My research for this trip is indeed Myanmar (Burma) heavy, but given the political atmosphere within the country can change in a heart beat and my complete lack of knowledge about anything to do with Myanmar, I thought reading as much as I could about the country would be beneficial.
