Well, this subject has had some great comments, i'm even more intrigued about this country now.
I'm so on my way to Myanmar, can't wait!!!!
Thankyou for all the positive feedback guys, i'm feeling completely inspired and motivated about getting there now.
One last thing - what is the visa time limit for MM when ou get it from BKK? I'm looking into getting one before i leave, just to make it a little easier? but am not sure if it's cheaper/longer/shorter visa from BKK?? - any info?
After your Myanmar visa is issued, you have three months (90 days) to use it. But it's only good for a total of 30 days no matter when you first start using it. Enjoy your trip!
Now, it is not necessary to change U.S $200.00 at the airport. In Myanmar, Credit Cards cannot be used everywhere and difficult to use, Travellers Cheques are the same, you cannot use or change to cash. U.S dollar notes are easy to use everywhere. You can apply for the visa at any Myanmar Embassy in England or in Bangkok.
It may not be required for proof of hotels booking for Visa.
