Myanmar (or Burma as it is often still called) is a far cry from the neighboring touristic favorites of Southeast Asia after years of closure for overseas. Myanmar is officially in Burmese. Myanmar has seen a huge growth in visitor numbers since its re-opening to foreigners in 2012.
Hot spots such as Yangon and Bagan can be particularly crowded during the high seasons. Some areas of the land are still banned for aliens due to continuing civil commotion, so please read the latest governmental information before you leave. Usually a can of indigenous beers like Myanmar or Mandalay beers costs less than $6, although drinking by conservatives Buddhists, Hindus and Muslims is still notorious.
Eating in Myanmar is not costly. West Coast dinner will be more. Usually, brief cab rides in towns are between K1,500-K2,000 (a few dollars). Long haul trips on the Irrawaddy River range from $20 to $50. Myanmar's towns and villages can be pricey, mainly because of high demands.
The Yangon Hotel is the most costly, sometimes up to $400 per overnight for the ultimative Lux. Burma has a temperate moonshine with a cold time of year, a warm time of year and a wet time. It rains between June and October, when the Bengal Bay and Yangon have mainly been affected by rain.
It is the coolest period of the year, but also the high seasons. With Thailand as your starting and finishing point, you can discover the real miracles of Myanmar on this two-week itinerary. Thai-Myanmar services are inclusive, so you can make the most of your journey.
