I like this Highland Asia Company because of people, who are working in it. They always try to do their best, to fulfill everything, on what you agreed before beginning of the trip. This is important for people, who decide to travel in Asia, because experienced tourists know, that it's not always like this here.Vladislav Rajevski

While it is absolutely important to up-to-date on routine vaccines before a trip to any country, Myanmar is no exception. So, it is suggested that you visit your health professional at least few weeks before your trip to check whether you need any routine vaccinations or other preventive measures and those with pre-existing health problems, consulting your doctor would be great.
The official currency of Myanmar is the Kyat (pronounced as ‘Chat'). Banknotes come in denominations of K1, K5, K10, K20, K50, K100, K200, K500, K1000, K5000, K10,000, and coins to the value of 100 and below. Kyat is a non-convertible currency and cannot officially be exchanged abroad.
Myanmar has a tropical climate and has distinct seasons –hot, wet and cool. The country becomes very hot from March to May. The temperatures often excess over 40°C (or 104°F)in the dry zone of the central plains in Bagan and Mandalay. From May to October, the southwest monsoon brings rain so there may be obstructed roads from July to September in particular.
Commonly used international airports in Myanmar are: Yangon International Airport - there are regular scheduled flights from Yangon to many major Asian cities, Mandalay International Airport - served by several flights from Hong Kong, China, Thailand and Singapore and Nay Pyi Taw International Airport. From outside, flying to a regional hub like Bangkok or Singapore is the cheapest way to reach Myanmar.
It is mandatory for travelers traveling to Myanmar to have a passport valid for at least six months after your departure from Myanmar and a valid visa. Also, make sure you are not running out of blank visa page. You can apply for a conventional Myanmar visa at the nearest embassies and consulates, or it's straightforward to obtain electronic travel authorization (eVisa) online, which is suitable for entry to Myanmar.
