The country's history requires some reading, I think. Not only will it show you better and in detail the history and the fragile relation with especially Thailand, but it will show you the two countries in many ways are similar and in other ways are very different, almost polar opposites.

Understand a little of Myanmar's history will make you appreciate Bagan or the Shwedagon Pagoda even more.

But it is of course the modern history that requires additional attention. Is it ethical to visit a country like Myanmar with a military dictator on the helm? Aung San Suu Kyi's Freedom for Fear is still relevant even after 20 years. It's a must read.

Maybe times change, but as long as Ne Win is president, the country can't be free. People suffer. But should we boycott? Aung San Suu Kyi has said yes. I think by visiting and keeping your eyes open, you can do probably more for the local Burmese. It's up to you.
