Interview of travel Market in Asia

Interview of 

Burma is a country full of resources even though its economy is one of the least developed in the world . It is important to know before you go to Burma as the main sectors are : agriculture, textile, mining and oil industries .  

Burma an INTERESTING Potential  

 Although Burma has not been a preferred supplier of major Western brands , the junta had a big impact on the success of the textile market . This can be explained by a lack of budget and finance. Industries such as weaving and dyeing are not competitive with those of other countries. The country tries to open up to globalization and reap its benefits . Today , foreign investments represent more than $ 6 billion and large groups are all interested in Burma. Textiles still represents the vast majority of manufactured exports and a significant part of the Burmese GDP. Plants confections, yet still few , will benefit at least part of these investments. The use of credit cards is still difficult in most of the country . Only a few major hotels in the most places accept under certain conditions, generally disadvantageous for the traveler. For cons , the nstallation DAB generalizes including Yangon , Bagan , Mandalay, and Taungyi Moulamying where Visa and MasterCard are accepted. U.S. dollars and Euros are easily changed in the country Kyats , which is the local money. The rate of exchange is about the same everywhere, although it is more interesting to Yangon . currency exchange at the airport is a good option. Current expenditures continue to make Kyats for small purchases (restaurants , souvenirs, etc. ) and in U.S. dollars and Euros for a little more substantial , such as hotels expenses. Go through our agency will advance to book your hotels and trips by private car or theft, your exemption so having too much cash on you ( although Myanmar remains for the moment an extremely safe country ) . source :  

Like you I am an unconditional market , this is the first thing that I visit ... In Burma I love, it is very typical ! Of course ALL markets around Inle Lake are great! In Yangon , there is a small market in India's neighborhood is not bad. Otherwise, Mandalay is pretty interesting. If you have the opportunity to go one above, I love the Pyin U Lwin , there are vendors of strawberries is pretty amazing in Asia. The atmosphere of Pyin U Lwin is very special. I was very disappointed by the Hsipaw , I expected to see some benefit minorities. I liked that of Bagan, the outer part because otherwise they are tourist shops . The dollar exchange with the FEC 200 is no longer required at the airport. Official windows offering an attractive rate ( dollars, euros) are recently opened in Yangon and Mandalay . The exchange rate is higher at these counters on the black market. Foreigners can easily change the counters showing their passports but it is still difficult for local do.   Dollars that you take must be new . The Burmese are very sensitive to dollars and tickets even slightly damaged, such as a small fold line , a spot of ink , etc ... will not be accepted , which often poses problems.

 Your mobile phone does not work in Burma. Calls for Europe will be taxed at your hotel very expensive, about 7 or 8 U.S. $ per minute and may be interrupted frequently. As the phone does not work, you can instellar the logical " Viber " on your phone ( smartphone) . This will allow you to call all your contacts will also instellĂ© " Viber " . Attention must install before leaving France . Then it will work if you have access to networks ' WIFI " .   Internet works in almost all hotels . Some hotels offer this service for free and others charge about U.S. $ 3 per hour. You can also easily find cafes in big cities but not in the rest of the country. The connection works best in Internet cafes in hotels and in principle cheaper. It is possible to call in Europe through an Internet connection, but it is common that the communication is interrupted.   Health insurance is strongly advised to take out travel insurance to come to Myanmar . Ensure that medical repatriation by plane in an emergency is also covered and included in your benefits for travel agencies and transport companies in Myanmar are not insured . You are also responsible to be covered in case of injury , personal expenses not provided or trip cancellation.   see also Burma 

What you need to know about birmanie/ myanmar

 Vaccines & Health No vaccinations are required for Burma , but it is better to be vaccinated against Hepatitis A and B against typhoid fever if you are planning a long stay in rural areas .   Luggage If your final destination is Burma , you must register your luggage to Yangon airport or other Burmese even if you change your airline on your trip .   For postcards it is better that the cards are stamped at the post office and they are sent to Yangon . The journey takes about 2 weeks for Europe.   Tips are appreciated in the tourism drivers, guides , waiters in restaurants, porters , etc. .... The custom, if you are satisfied with your trip is to give to the whole group about 3-5 U.S. $ per day for the driver and 5 to U.S. $ 10 per day for your guide.   The airport tax should no longer pay the airport tax to leave the country since 2012 .   Medically necessary • Aspirin, Paracetamol
