Jewish Community in Burma

Myanmar's tourism industry is "red-hot:" just about 300,000 people visited the country in 2010, but three years later, that number had ballooned to over 2 million tourists. Before prices catch up with you, go ride a boat on Inle Lake, explore a dark cave pagoda, and catch the sunset reflecting off Shwedagon Paya.  Also a small Jewish community in Yangon, including an historic synagogue. Check out my chapter on Burma in  “The Scattered Tribe: Traveling the Diaspora from Cuba to India to Tahiti & Beyond,” (Globe Pequot Press). Wherever books are sold, including an e book. http://amzn.to/J3Z47T Follow me on twitter @bengfrank :
