Just how clean and uncreased do those bills need to be?

Jump to last reply

In planning for our upcoming trip, I keep reading all this talk of Burma, in particular, being the one place where the visitor really needs to pay special heed to the whole unmarked/uncreased bills rule-of-thumb.

I'm used to this requirement from traveling around other parts of SE Asia--and I've honestly never had a single bill rejected anywhere in my travels--but it seems to me the more message boards and trip reports I read that Burma, in particular, is much more stringent on these rules. Is that the case?

Usually when I go to the bank pre-travel they do their best to give me the least tattered and unmarked bills as possible, but finding an infinite number of literally "never been touched" bills is rather challenging and fairly impossible.

The question, I guess, is just how pristine are we talking? And how literal to take uncreased? I don't know many folks who travel with that kind of cash in a suitcase, so chances are the cash going to get creased when you fold it in your pocket.

Thoughts?
