Plan on an extra day or two in your trip for excursion

It is advised that you allow couple of spare days for additional sight-seeing or excursions in case if you wish to do when you are in Myanmar.


Myanmar is an amazing and beautiful place to see and the people are incredibly nice and hospitable. Likewise in other part of the world, Burmese people who approach you with a conversation are not necessarily trying to sell something. For Burmese people, meeting tourist is welcoming a guests in their land isolated for many years.


Majority of Burmese follow Buddhism as their ritual practice. If you arrive with some sorts of knowledge or understanding of Buddhism; it will be reflected as a deep respect and Burmese will certainly admire this from the very core of their heart.


Likewise in many other countries, tourist guides are professionals and are trained to high standard. Tipping is expected and you are advised to tip at your will.
