Travel Tips               

We offer our value travellers some helpful ideas and suggestions when planning your trip to Myanmar. If you need more specific information please feel free to contact us.

Airport Tax

Any passengers departing Myanmar on international flights must pay a departure tax of US$ 10.00 per person (with effect from March, 2006) and domestic departures at every airport in Myanmar must also pay 1000 Kyats (Myanmar local currency) per person ( with effect from June 2011).


Jewellery, electrical goods and cameras must be declared at the airport. Antiques and archaeological valuable items are not allowed to be taken out of the country. Duty free allowance are 2 bottles of liquor, 2 cartons of cigarettes, 100 cigars, 1.5 lb of tobacco, one pint bottle of perfume or eau de cologne. Receipt of purchase and an export permit voucher for locally bought goods such as gems and jewelry may be required upon departure.

Domestic Airlines & Flights

Air Bagan, Air Mandalay, Asian Wings and Yangon Airways are privately operated airlines flying throughout Myanmar. There is a 20 Kilo limit for baggage per person and excess baggage fees may be charged. We suggest you leave items not needed upcountry, in Yangon, and collect them upon your return.


The majority of the people speak Myanmar (Burmese) and English is widely used in major cities like Yangon and Mandalay.


Myanmar distinguishes three major seasons: the cold season from October to February, the hot season from March until the beginning of June (with peak temperatures around 45 degrees Celsius) and the rainy season from the middle of June to September. Myanmar can be visited all year round.

Credit Cards

Presently credit cards are not accepted in Myanmar so you should carry enough cash to cover all your expenses for your trip in Myanmar.


We recommend visitors to bring brand new US Dollars cash. US Dollars are widely accepted throughout Myanmar and are easily exchangeable for the local Kyat currency.
