How safe is Burma/Myanmar for tourists. I have my visa for Burma, but have just read that there is an election soon. Will it still be safe to travel there as a tourist? I like taking photographs, will they suspect that I'm a journalist? I want to go to Rangoon/Yangon and the coastal areas. Is the Junta going to cause trouble during the election and will there be riots?
How safe is it in general, should I rather wait until after the elections?
