About entering Yangon for the third time and subsequent  (4 Answers)

May i know is it true if you have entered Yangon in the past two years you cannot enter Yangon the third time with a single tourist entry visa? A travel agent asked me to apply a business visa in order to enter Yangon the third and subsequent times. Otherwise show proof of employer letter allowing me to tour Yangon again. I do not want to go through the hassle again.

Please advise.

some questions for preparing my next trip  (8 Answers)

Hi to all of you who live in Burma! I am going to visit this wonderful country end of january 2015. Would be great if you can support me by answering some questions.

Do I need guestroom reservations or will I find a room easily?
Is it possible to get tickets for the bus / train just one day before I continue my trip?

What is better to bring with - USD or EUR?
Can I withdraw money at ATM (maestro)?
Are prepaid SIM cars available for tourists?
Which are the little goodies (except money) that people in Burma like ?

Maybe you also have some hints about
- traffic and road conditions for motorcycles at Mandalay and north
- visiting a project of social work
- living like a buddhist monk (one day should be enough!)
- experiencing the life of burmese farmer, lawer, teacher, ... or whatever

Thank you so much for giving me an idea about the current siutation and all your ideas for a pleasant stay.

Can anybody suggest a 4D/3N itinerary in Myanmar?  (12 Answers)

Hi,

Will be going to Myanmar end of January. Basically arriving 8am on Thursday and leaving early morning of Sunday. So I guess that's just 3d/3n. I would really like to visit Bagan and Mt Popa but they seem to be too far and the plane ride quite expensive. Any suggestions on a good itinerary? I really don't want to rush from one place to another. More like savor the ones I get to see :)

Thanks in advance!

Pazundaung Town Cemetery (Rangoon Town Cemetery)  (8 Answers)

We'll be in Rangoon soon and wonder if anyone has been to this cemetery or knows where it is located? I'm not 100% sure if this is the right name for it still, but know it was a Christian cemetery and is not one of the war cemeteries. I've found Pazundaung on the map but it looks quite a large area and I don't know how easy it would be just to wander around the area. Thanks.

Obtaining a Myanmar entry visa  (9 Answers)

i understand now that obtaining a Myanmar entry visa requires not only a presentation of passport with six months validity from the date of travel, three passport photos but also the traveller's namecard. Is it true all travellers must show the Embassy their namecards? What will happen to travellers that have no namecards? And i understand Myanmar has restrictions to the kind of travellers that are trying to enter Yangon. Writers, publishers and any kind of journalists are not allowed to enter Yangon. So what other professionals are prohibited entry to Yangon?
