Burma pregnant

Jump to last reply

I have planned a trip to Burma (Myanmar) for Nov 12 and I just found out I am pregnant.

Our plan is to visit Yangon 2 days, Bagan 3 days and Inle Lake 3 days.
We have everything ready (visa, hotels and flights) and we are very excited about everything but I am worried about malaria in the country and exposure to food poisoning.
I am planning to take a mosquito head net, bed net (just in case) and deet repelent.
I am talking to my doctor about it but I would like to know from you:

Did you get sick from the food ? (I am from a developing country myself, but I dont know how bad the food can be) I am even thinking on taking some cans (sounds a bit ridiculous I know but better than getting sick in my condition)

Was there anything in the trip you remember could be avoided ? someone mentioned the hourse trip in Bagan could be a bit jumpy.

Did you get mosquito bites ?
I travelled to Tanzania (big malaria area) and found that a good repelent and face net could do it.


Thanks for your kind advise.
