Laos was under the control of Siam (Thailand) from the late 18th century until the late 19th century when it became part of French Indochina. The Franco-Siamese Treaty of 1907 defined the current Lao border with Thailand. In 1975, the Communist Pathet Lao took control of the government, ending a six-century-old monarchy. Initial closer ties to Vietnam and socialization were replaced with a gradual return to private enterprise, a liberalization of foreign investment laws, and the admission into ASEAN in 1997.

Burmese Cats

Animals resembling Burmese Cats existed hundreds of years ago in Thailand and Burma. Legends say that the Burmese were the traditional pets of Royalty and Nobility long before the Siamese. As was the Siamese, the Burmese were temple cats assigned a student monk to indulge their every whim. In the 19th century they were known in England as Chocolate Siamese, but the Burmese cat breed died out there. Their coats are very short, satin-like in texture, and generally require little grooming other than daily petting. Burmese have large, expressive eyes that are great pools of innocence and seductive appeal, irresistible in effect.
 

Environment

Ecology & Environment
From the snow-capped Himalayas in the north to the coral-fringed Mergui Archipelago in the south, Myanmar's 2000-km length crosses three distinct ecological regions within the vast Indo-Malay bio geographic realm: the Indian sub region along the Bangladesh and India borders; the Indochinese sub region in the north bordering Laos and China; and the Syndic sub region bordering peninsular Thailand. Together these regions produce what is quite likely the richest biodiversity in South-East Asia.
