Looking for some help!
I want to Scuba dive on the Myeik Archipelago, however my wife does not dive or like to travel by boat so a liveaboard trip is out of the question!
Is it possible to book day dives from Myeik ?
I have 10 days to travel Yangon,Mawlamyine, Dawei and Myeik, would rather not fly all suggestions will be gratefully accepted!
Assuming of course Day dives are possible!
checked Air Mandalay and Air Bagan, flights leave Yangon at 630am and land an hour after. can we cover Bagan in say 9-4pm and rush back to Yangon same day at 5:25pm?
Pagodas weve seen much throughout Asia, interesting differences should only be a handful. And not really into buddhist temples etc
appreciate your feedbacks!
Hello there! I will be making a trip down to Yangon from Jan. 7th till 13th 2013.
Is there any recommendations for a Japanese speaking tour guide & preferably with his or her own transport?
My purpose of the trip is to visit Japan car importers or car showrooms in Yangon. The more the merrier....
I can converse in English but my directors can't....
Jan. 7th to 10th - Myself. English speaking guide will be fine.
Jan. 11th 13th - My directors & myself. Requires Japanese speaking guide.
Your enlightenments will be greatly appricated!
Does anyone know where to find new, unused US Dollar notes in Singapore for travelling in Yangon? I have been to the money exchangers in Changi Airport and downtown and they do not keep stock of clean and unused US Dollar notes. All the notes are used and dated from the year 2006 and before 2006.
It appears that all Myanmar hosteliers and hoteliers require clean and unused US Dollar notes. In such a way, how can tourists travel in Myanmar with ease?
I know that there are no ATM machines in Myanmar and that you cannot use credit cards there. Therefore, I am asking approximately how much cash one should bring to cover a trip of two weeks that would cover the following: Yangon, Mrauk U, Mandalay, Mingun, Amarapura, Sagaing, Bagan, and Inle Lake.
I usually stay at three star hotels when I travel.
I know that this is a hard question to answer, but I have never been on a trip where I don't have instant access to my money and have to bring all of it in cash along on my trip.
Now that the Burmese national election is over and Aung San Suu Kyi has been released from house arrest, has the Burmese government now permit visa to be obtained on arrival at the Yangon airport?
I come fr Indonesia & just moving to Yangon for couple a years doing my job. Is there VT member in Yangon? Tx
I would like to get from Yangon to Inle Lake. I know that it takes around 18 hours by bus. Does anyone know more or less the bus schedule? Do buses leave in the morning/ evening? Are there any recommended buses and from where they leave?
Is there much in the way of nightlife in Yangon? I was there 2 years ago and it was dire.
Has anyone recently lived and worked in Yangon and can tell me about their experience? What kind of jobs are available? How to rent accommodation? What kind of visa is required?
My guidebook is from 2002 and is probably wrong about most things. I´m needing to know if and where I can find a automatic teller machine in Yangon or at the airport where I can draw money on my Visa Debit card. Do they still use the system of exchanging for FEC´s? What´s the best for me? I could just pay with cash US dollars? Dres
A question regarding use of money in Yangon. As a visitor, when mustUSs be used when is it possible to use local currency for eg. internal air flights, hotels (mid ranged), taxis, etc? And finally, does it make any difference in terms of actual out-of-pocket expenses?
I noticed that there are at least a dozen good golf courses around Yangon. Does any one know of any 'golf societies' (like in Thailand), where expats and others who love to golf can link-up for matches (often discounted), transportation, socializing etc?
I am a thirty-something female and will be in Myanmar from December 13 until December 24. I have a few family members in Myanmar, but I’ll be traveling there solo and will be on my own most of the time. I’ve traveled all over the world, but I’ve never traveled by myself. I must say, I’m excited yet nervous. If anyone is going to be in Yangon around the same time, I’d love to meet up with you and explore Yangon a bit (including restaurants, nightlife, pagodas, etc.). I speak a little Burmese and have been there before; so that should be good.
A little bit about me: I’m passionate about fitness (I stay active and love to go skiing, hiking and whitewater rafting). I’m passionate about food (I love eating out, especially at intimate BYOB’s and the new “it” restaurants. I also love to cook, especially Asian fusion). I am even passionate about my job (I’m an attorney in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania).
Just so that it’s clear: I’m not looking to hook up with anyone; I do have a serious boyfriend. I just want to meet new friends to hang out with while in Myanmar. I’d love to meet other professionals, male or female, around my age (25-40 years) - and I'd especially love to meet American expats living in Yangon.
I hope to hear from you soon! :)
I'm interested in travelling to Burma, in particular Yangon within the next 2 years. Some members of my family lived in Yangon approx mid 1930's. My mother's birth was registered with the address being 100 Forest Road and I would like to know if this address still exists and if it was possible to obtain a photograph of it? I've seen it mentioned on a website - "Strand road between Ahlon road and Forest road in Ahlon Township". I've looked on as many current maps as I can find but no luck, any help would be appreciated.
I will visit Burma for 28 days so I want to know if somebody can suggest me a tour only by bus from Rangoon . my first choice is Bago Mandalay Inle lake and Chaugtha Trip will be from feb to march. Shiva
