How long do I need to explore Myanmar?

According to many travellers, you should spend at least 2 days in each destination to explore the most outstanding places. In addition, if you can, keep your travel plans flexible enough to where you can simply leave when you think it's time to go.

The best time to visit Myanmar

Although you can explore Myanmar all year round, the best time to visit this country is in the winter season which lasts from November to February when the weather is pleasant with the cool breeze. While from March to May, the average temperatures can rise to more than 40 degrees Celsius and from June to September is the wet season with torrential rains and flooding.

Which destinations should I visit in Myanmar?

Manymar is well known for many charm and untouched destinations, so it can be overwhelming to choose where to explore in your 1st trip.

Remember that as everyone is different, you might want to check the main attractions and activities in each destination to decide. The other option would be contacting us for your enquiry and our experts are always ready to give you some best advice about where to visit in Myanmar.

Is tipping mandatory in Myanmar?

The same as some other countries in Southeast Asia, Tipping is not part of Myanmar's culture. However, giving a small amount of money for waiters, luggage porters, drivers, tour guide, etc is a great way to appreciate their excellent services.

Is food in Myanmar safe and clean?

For food lovers, trying as much as delicious local food is one of the best things to do. However, the possibility of getting food poisoning in a different country finds it easy to happen. To avoid this big issue in Myanmar, one tip is that you shouldn't eat in any place that is dirty and has only a few local customers. Choosing or asking either tour guide or receptionist in your hotel for some reliable addresses where most locals are eating. In addition, some travellers do not have any problem with uncooked vegetables, but if you are concerned about this, stick with soups and cooked vegetables.

SIM card in Myanmar

Regarding the SIM card in Myanmar, there are 4 mobile operators which are Ooredoo, Telenor, MPT and MyTel providing the SIM card service. Amongst them, according to travellers, MPT is probably is the best coverage and signal across the country. For the price, it might cost you from $1 - $2 to buy a SIM card, and around $10 - $15 for an internet package (Depending on how much data you wish to buy).

What is Myanmar preferred currency?

The local currency is Kyat and this is also the preferred currency in Myanmar. You should be aware to pay most expenses with it. For larger bills such as overnight buses, tours and accommodation, you can pay in US dollars. Major hotels and resorts in big cities such as Yangon, Mandalay, etc may accept payment by debit card or credit but usually come with some heavy fees and high exchange rates. Although this may still be possible under certain circumstances, kyat is now the preferred currency, and visitors should plan to pay most expenses with it. Major hotels in cities may accept payment by credit or debit card.

Is the tap water in Myanmar clean to drink?

Tap water is not drinkable in Myanmar as same as other Southeast Asia countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia or Laos since it may contain waterborne viruses. You should drink only bottled water & soft drinks that haven't been opened. In case you do not have safe bottled water or can't buy them, you should boil the water to make it safe to drink.

Vaccinations for Myanmar

For vaccinations for travelling to Myanmar, you should seek medical advice from your doctor. Since there are some vaccinations (e.g: Rabies) involve a course of 3 injections over a period of time to get full protection, you might want to ask your doctor as soon as possible. For malaria, according to National Health Service (NHS) in the UK, you should cover up your body with clothing (long trousers and long sleeves) especially after sunset, always bring & using insect repellents on exposed skin and sleeping under a mosquito net.
