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.

Jot down some must- try dishes

Myanmar is synonymous with a great deal of savoury cuisines that you should taste at least once. To optimize your experience without breaking the bank, you should take note of some popular local dishes in advance. Among them, tea leaf salad is an ideal choice. This dish is served in the form of lephet thoke. To make the dish, the sour, slightly bitter leaves are mixed by hand with shredded cabbage, sliced tomatoes, crunchy deep-fried beans, nuts and peas, a splash of garlic oil and pungent slices of chilli and garlic. Other cuisines like Shan-style rice, which is an oily and sublime dish or Burmese curry also deserve to give a try. 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.
