Recognisable facts before your trip to Myanmar
Burma can be a success or failure in fulfilling one' s own hopes. However, there are many things in Myanmar that may come as a pleasant surprise. In Myanmar. The Burmese are a land of over 100 indigenous peoples and a civilization of silence, the Tanaka and the long-lived, and they go through their hard-working life quite easily. Here are some things you might find interesting about Myanmar before you go.

When is the best holiday season?
I would say as per the best season to go to Myanmar, consider the best and prevent the worse. Most people will tell you that the best period to visit is from November to February, when the climate is cold. However, the price of accommodation is at its highest, the tourist attraction is full, the accommodation is quickly fully occupied and therefore bookings must be made in good before.
May to June is probably a less appealing period for a trip to Myanmar, as it is generally the hotter one. However, if you can endure some warmth (similar to Thailand in summer), then you should stay away from the crowd, you can stay in the evening before (or on foot) and the cost of the accommodation is lower.
The price of guest houses increases yearly. Meanwhile, the price of neighbouring South East Asia guest houses in Laos ($5-20/day), Vietnam ($12-30/day), Thailand can reach $18-25/day.

The times of exchanging currencies on the subprime markets are over, but the Burmese are highly selective about the value of their USdollar. Whilst you can switch your cash there, why should you want to if you can switch it in more serious places such as the airports, as well as hotel and guesthouse.
Though I have been enjoying my Myanmar trip, I easily agree). Perhaps if you are the guy who needs to see many rides or has a busy schedule, you should make a reservation for a sojourn. When you are interested in taking your own leisure to see the cultural scene, a longer visit could be worthwhile.
It' simpler to get around Myanmar than it seems. Long haul routes are: flight, train or long-distance coaches, night sleep busses and luxurious VIP coaches.

If I had raised my cameras, I would know that I would have been asked for cash, and a monk would not be able to use it. My favourite movies, arts and travelling video are to show you that travelling is possible at any time!
