Haggle for Taxis 

Taxis in Myanmar don’t have fixed pricing. Grabbing a taxi from the airport to downtown can be a hassle, especially when you are a visitor. In order to avoid a rip-off, don’t be afraid to haggle. Standard fare from most places in Yangon should be between $2-3.7 and between US$6.5-7.50 to the airport or National Bus Station. You can depend on the price list to bargain properly. Just don’t be impolite or rude when haggling.

Bring hand sanitizer and tissues

In the context of Corona pandemic, it is better when you can bring along some personal stuff to protect yourself. This applies not just to Myanmar, but it is a useful tip for any destinations. You will likely be travelling for long periods on public transportations like buses or cabs. It means that you may touch many things and you might be exposed to the disease. Be active and do not over-reliant on public toilets, prepare some hand hygiene and water tissues before having a Myanmar private tour. Particularly, there is a little convenience store in Myanmar, so it is better to bring your own.

Plus, don’t forget to stop by some well-known eateries in your Myanmar travel package, which are home to the sticky yellow stuff. This dish is served over thin rice noodles and seasoned chicken or pork. It's decorated with a drizzle of chilli oil and includes sides of pickled veggies and broth. It's a mouth-watering and visually combination. If you're a fan of rich flavours, this one is cut out for you. Last but not least, in case you are allergic to some specific ingredients, be aware before tasting a dish.
