Myanmar Festivals

Being lucky to live in a golden land of tourism, the Myanmar are interesting and enjoyable people. With the main occupation of agriculture, they have built their own easy livelihood as their natural environment.

Unlike people in some other countries, they inhabit in a range of parts along Myanmar land, allowing them to take advantages of  huge natural assets, such as forests, mountains, hills, lakes, streams, and sea coast.

Myanmar New Year Water Festival

Lifestyle of Myanmar is so amphibious, which you can easily feel through their cultural activities. As its own natural rule, each month of the Myanmar lunar calendar comes with a certain season, certain flower kinds, certain zodiacal signs, certain constellation and of course certain seasonal festivals. Classical poets have even created verses about twelve seasons to describe the special beauty of each season, every  seasonal flower, as well as each seasonal zodiacal sign. And by the time which people suppose that everything reaches its most beauty, there will be a festival held.
