Travel tips for Myanmar

 

Here are a few suggestions you better keep in mind, each country has its cultural idiosyncrasies, it’s similar with Myanmar and it is better to be aware of this to avoid embarrassments.

 - One instance every tourist will be confronted is to take off shoes and socks before you entering a temple, pagoda or a private

house and keep the feet low. Also don’t point the feet  to anyone and never step over a person, walk around. 

- A particular local rule is avoid stepping on a monk’s or nun’s shadow.

 - Use your right hand or both when giving and receiving. In a home people local people usually use low table, sitting on mats on the floor, and often use their fingers to eat.

- Do not wear shorts, miniskirts or sleeveless shirts when visiting religious places. Actually nobody will complain about if it is done but it’s some kind of showing respect .Never drink or use any water except bottled, don’t use ice cubes.

Keep US$10 per person for airport tax to be paid at departure.

To change money go to the money changer, don’t use banks or the changer at the airport they pull unreasonable high money from you in downtown’s Bogyoke Market, that's the best shopping destination in the city (not at the Bank there) they give you about 30% more.

Electricity is 220V, 50 Hz, with various plugs, but mostly there is no electricity anyway unless in a hotel or a house where they have their own generator. That includes south Myanmar. When shopping make sure to have an official bill and make also certain with the seller that you can export the item. There are often problems with antiques or religious items at departure. As you can see many people go shopping and this market is for sure the bazaar in the country and should be visited at least once during your visit.
