Going to Yangon 27th March for 5 days.

Read some interesting reports

e.g. mobiles dont work, taken from you at immigration and returned when you leave!!!!,

no ATM's,

difficulty changing money, take only US dollars,

cant travel around on train or buses as independant travellers.

 

Wont stop me going but would like to hear from someone with recent experience.

They dont take your phones but they wont work unless you get a local sim which are very expensive and you have to get from government

 

You can travel pretty easily allthough there are no go areas but no problems in yangon

 

You need to take US Dollars but they will change other currencies like SGD, AUD, etc in your hotel
