Preferred currency Kyat or u. sd - Myanmar Message Board
Kyat (pronounced "chat") is the currency of Myanmar, acronym " K " or " MMK " and is usually placed before the numeric value (i.e. K500). However, the US dollar is a common currency, especially for large purchases: It is sometimes assumed that expatriates spend US dollar on hotel accommodation, top class dining, air travel and historic attractions.
Sometimes a lower installment can occur if payments for these operations are made in Kyat. If you pay in dollar, you will often receive your exchange in Kyat. Minor shopping such as taxis, busses and cheap to medium sized lunches are offered and almost always payed in Kyat.
Be prepared to convert about half of the funds you take to Myanmar to Kyat. When you spend more than a few nights outside Yangon, Mandalay or Nay Pyi Taw, make sure you make sure you have enough cash in advance; it can be hard to make changes outside the capitals, and you will probably get a lower price.
It is also more diffi cult to find cash machines in these areas. Dollars should be taken to Myanmar in different denominations: Take ample $10, $5 and $1 notes to cover hotel, flight and historic places and take $100 or $50 notes to exchange for Kyat (larger denominations usually get a better price).
Mistakes of any kind - kinks, stains, wrinkles, etc. - can lead to a much poorer currency quote or the currency cannot be used. Therefore, it is a good idea to keep the US dollar in a secure, shallow file - not in a pocket. You can change cash at the bank in the city centers and at most large airport locations, which include Yangon, Mandalay, Nay Pyi Taw, Bagan and Thandwe (for Ngapali Beach).
Up until the recent reform of Myanmar's governance, it was necessary for Myanmar residents to switch funds on the subprime markets in order to obtain an appropriate currency parity. That is no longer the case; you can now get a good bank currency quote and get your currency exchanged officially. Road coin exchangers should be averted as they are likely to cheat you.
Not surprisingly, the currency fluctuates; see our currency wizard at the bottom of this page. Card holders can also cash in cash machines and use their credit card at a rising number of large points of sale such as banks, shops and retail stores. Other banks are AGD Bank, AYA Bank and United Amara Bank.
