Myanmar Travel Advice
Make sure you are up-to-date with the pre-departure essentials before your trip to Myanmar.
Useful Tips for Myanmar Tours
The currency in Myanmar is the Myanmar Kyat (MMK). We recommend you go to the city center to change your money.
ATMs are available in central locations, but access is difficult in rural areas. Credit cards are widely accepted but not for small payments in some local shops.
We recommend carrying cash with you at all times.
The Food Scene
Burmese cuisine blends the most common products of Thailand, India, and China. Typical of Southeast Asia, seafood and rice are the main ingredients of Myanmar’s best dishes.
Myanmar is famous for its salads (thoke). Make sure you try the Tea Leaf Salad and Nan Gyi Thoke. Other highlights are fried snacks that go well with walking tours in the Burmese cities.
Have a sip of Myanmar’s national drink, Toddy. Resembling rum in taste, the fermented spirit will spice up your evenings like no other.
Drinking tap water is not safe in Myanmar. We recommend bottled water at all times.
Are you traveling alone? You can stay in a single room if your Myanmar tour has the single supplement option.
You can also be roomed with a solo traveler of the same gender.
