Union Of The States AND Tribes

Asian Geographic - - On Assignment -

Myan­mar is closely con­nected to her neigh­bour­ing coun­tries: Thai­land in the East, In­dia in the West, Malaysia in the South, China in the North-east and Ti­bet in the North. Its to­pog­ra­phy con­sists of moun­tains, val­leys, streams, rivers and wet­lands.

}Seven col­lec­tive states rep­re­sent the eight main eth­nic groups: Shan, Kachin, Kayin, Kayah, Chin, Mon, Ba­mar and Rakhine, each with nu­mer­ous sub-groups, or tribes. The races – and lan­guages – rep­re­sented by these tribes are also vastly di­verse.
