Famous and influential people of Burma

Famous and influential people of Burma

Burma continues to keep both its treasures and its darker side concealed to this day. Among the great individuals who have left their mark on the history of this country, we can include the names of the courageous Aung San Suu Kyi, the dictator Than Shwe, the drug trafficker Khun Sa and the kickboxer Nilar Win. With the opening up of Burma to the West, other names will no doubt be added to this list as time goes on.
