'A New Dawn' Food and Travel Magazine

'A New Dawn' - Gourmet Traveller feature for Food and Travel Magazine. Long closed to responsible travellers, recent elections provide the chance for a more democratic Burma and it's really exciting.

"A New Dawn" - After years in the political wilderness, Burma is at last showing signs of joining the 21st Century, ending decades of oppression and infighting.
