In this country, USD is preferred, but in excellent conditions! No creased, stained, bended bank notes are accepted. Note also that it’s better to change money on the black market, in stores, hotels or other, as exchanging rates are more reasonable.
It’s possible to find ATMs accepting Mastercard and Visa bank cards in major cities but their efficiencies are questioned.
COST OF LIFE
Myanmar is a relatively cheap country, with food on average between US$ 3 and US$ 5.
Tips are part of everyday life but these gifts can take different forms (pack of cigarettes, a T-shirt …).
