Myanmar: Road to Bangladesh

New Mandala has a post on the new Friendship Road that is being built to connect Myanmar and Bangladesh. Road links between Myanmar and its western neighbors (India and Bangladesh) are not as developed as the ones in the East (Thailand and China). The blogger at New Mandala asks “Major roads now obviously link Thailand and China to Burma, and a road from Bangladesh is an important new direction for regional transport linkages. I have little direct experience of Burma’s western borderlands but certainly welcome any comments from New Mandala readers who can tell us more.”

    Hi all,
    I am Kalam Azad from The Netherlands wil travel to Bangladesh by train soon.It wil be a long journey via Moskow,Beijing, Vietnam, Laos, thailand ,Myanmar to Bangladesh almost 17000 km.

    I have al information without Myanmar to Bangladesh by road/train/bus/car ?? if anyone knows about Myanmar to bangladesh by road/ boat? pls let me know .
    I think bangladesh and Myanmar govt must be slim for their own interest to open this border.
    It could be a big big financial /business interest for both countris and the people of both countries. Tourists wil be helpful and they would be able to raech everywhere in Asia to Europeand Africa by bus/train . Wonderful !!! The world wil be much smaller and faster !!!
    I wil be respectful to maintain Myanmar laws and rules and i think everybody should respect there rules . And 2 govts. can make it easier.
