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.

Jot down some must- try dishes

Myanmar is synonymous with a great deal of savoury cuisines that you should taste at least once.

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.
