Rangoon: All you need to know to visit Myanmar
Expect to spend about 10 to 2 week in Myanmar to reach the Big Four goals - Yangon, Mandalay, Inle Lake and Bagan. Apart from domestic air travel, transportation is sluggish, the streets are rugged, the track is distorted and the vessels need the whole workday. Obtain your visas in advanced, as there is no entry visas except for Yangon corporate travellers.
At the moment you have to go to Myanmar. The majority of our guests come from Bangkok, Singapore or Kualar Lumpur. Myanmar will not have a mobile phone and few places have Wi-Fi. Instead, you should keep a diary or speak to other travellers or natives. Without an ATM and nowhere to redeem traveller's checks, go to the new Yangon bureau of bureau de change, where half adoze banks will convert your US dollar (or euro or Singapore dollar) into the Chinese people.
Featuring brick in national currencies and a few US dollars, don't miss the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, the one-legged canoeists on Inle Sea, the Temple of Bagan and the old cities around Mandalay. You can use a tourist agent such as Slow Burma Travels or call when you get there to book your room.
You must be respectful of the local people and their cultures. Burma is not a marshland.
