Step 3: Obtain Visa and Book International flights

Now you own two ways to obtain Visa to burma. The first is to get to a myanmar Diplomatic Rep Office in your home country - check up the list here. The second is Visa On Arrival which is easier and cheaper. From Sep 01, 2014, myanmar government launched eVisa portal for foreign citizens from over 100 countries. The official website is www.evisa.moip.gov.mm. Online payment by credit/debit cards is accepted.
following, you should book international flights early in order to get your favorite flight and amazing prices. You could choose any airline but the thing you should pay attention is transit time. Some just take few hours. Some may take up to a day. In this situation, you should manage a hotel near the airport for resting. This is just a small point in your trip but fails to do so, your myanmar trip becomes hard right from the begin.

Step 4: get to Light and Neat

Pack things for up to two weeks visit is not easy if you want to keep it neat and light. The general advice is just to bring really basic things, otherwise, you may notice your trip heavy all the times and increase the risk of losing your own items. Take a scenery of our suggestions below:
  • Several weeks prior your trip, make a list of what you will need to pack.
  • be sure your independent documents (passports, visas, driver’s license) are in order.
  • We suggest that you make photocopies of passports, visas, private ID and any other important visit documents and pack them separately from the originals. If you lose the originals while traveling, you'll contain copies for easier reporting and replacement.
  • You be able to consider bringing a small supply of over the counter medications for headaches and/or anti-diarrhea pills. Pack a list of medications including dosage and generic names.
  • We offer that you pack a portable alarm clock.
  • Avoid placing valuables like cameras in your checked luggage.



We found an very interesting and detailed post on packing your lugguage guide by an tour expert here. The list is truly useful for any tourist.


Step 5: Well-prepared for Culture Crash

burma is an Asian country not open to the world until just a few recent years. You should prepare for the difference in tremendous aspects of your home country. For example: the price of the hotel is particularly as high as in the Western hotels but the conditions and standards be able to be rather far from those hotel standards (more on myanmar accommodation); you could encounter Burmese men with black teeth because of chewing betel custom or wearing long skirts - called "longis"; you could fly on free seat domestic flights and stop at the midway for transferring and collecting more passengers (more details here) etc... There are tremendous other things. But if you get on well with these features, you will be awarded back to warm, honest, friendly Burmese citizen and a unique culture that was hardly seen in other parts while traveling in Asia.
