Burmese culture and traditions


The Burmese culture is largely influenced by Buddhism and that of the Mon people who established the Burmese writing system.

Other influences are also remarkable, such as Chinese influence, since the Burmese ethnic group originated in Yunnan, a region in southwestern China. There are many similarities with other countries in Southeast Asia as well.

Later, British and Western influences also came to change the language and education.
