Carrying money in Myanmar (Burma) & what currency to use - Lis's travel tips
Myanmar's other big issue is - they don't take plastic or plastic money, there are no ATM' s that take money from abroad (yes, all of them don't work) or travellers cheques. Carry money to Myanmar - you must have US dollar, optional you can carry Euro and Singapore dollar.
Myanmar two currency for the tourist: Dollar and Kiev. Myanmar tourists need two different currency for their expenses: US$ for: airfare, train, most hotel, state entrance fee, quality restaurant and business; Burma Khat for: some very inexpensive guesthouses, busses, locals taxi, restaurant, local business.
They cannot buy (or exchange) Kyoto outside the UK - you trade on your return in US Dollar, Euro or Singapore Dollar (ONLY no, they do not take into account any other currency - no other currency than Thailand Bh.). It' more tricky than that - your memos must be flawless, i.e. no wrinkles; no stains; no lettering; the bigger ones must be flawless than the smaller ones.
As originally - not sure, but I think I'm exaggerating my chances with the $1 on the right side of this picture. You' ll also get a better price for $100/?100/S$100 than for smaller Denomination. Notice that you can get 200 and 500, but keep in mind at an exchangerate of about 1110kyat and the biggest 5000k frequently used - that's a whole bunch of banknotes!
How does a tourist make a difference? At the moment, the best installment seems to be from the government banking institutions, and the best installment is from the first one you will find before duty on your arrival internationally, Yangon! Really, I said Myanmar is one of a kind! They are contacted by foreclosure companies who want to alter prices - but a reasonable bid will actually be slightly below the discount level.
When you are given an incredibly good price on the streets - it's a fraud - these boys are very, very good, and the only cases I've ever hear of a tourist being cheated in Myanmar seem to be on the sidelines. Most of the time you will want to keep away from the illegal trade - unless you are trapped with "dirty" banknotes - then maybe they are your best choice (the other alternative is to leave the state prematurely).
I have a mix of Euro and US$ with me. This is not because I am living in the euro zone - I honestly had great difficulty getting untouched USdollar. While the US still uses "paper money" while the euro zone and many other nations spend "plastic money" - it is much more solid and I got much better 100 euro-denominations.
So if you are earning either Euros or Singapore dollar, I suggest that you use 1/3 to 1/2 of your budgets in these currency for translation into Kieto. Crimes against foreign nationals are very uncommon in Burma - for tourists it is probably the most secure land in Southeast Asia. In fact, many folks have either never or for us older travellers, not for a long period of the year, borne tens of millions of dollars also.
First, I wear most of the currency in a purse - refills a pocket holder - it's more convenient, plus with a little bit of creativity using carton and the small zip lock pockets the bank keep the currency in I can keep the bills shallow and clean. However, I wanted to bear the currency in at least two different positions, so I also devised a new approximation to monetary obfuscation - one of these - costs about $2!
Notice that mine was a very good value for US dollar, but the euro is too broad for that - so choose your case with caution.
