The new edition of The Irrawaddy devotes a number of articles to tourism in Burma. There is Aung Zaw on the “moral minefield“, Dominic Faulder on economics, Sai Silp on Thai tourists, Emma Larkin’s personal reflections, Jim Andrews’ discussion of guidebooks and an outline of an alternative tourist trail. All highly readable and definitely worth a look.

Comments on The Irrawaddy‘s coverage are, of course, very welcome.
