Myanmar - some questions

Jump to last reply

We will be arriving in Myanmar in early February. We planned our trip with Myanmar Shalom. We appreciate the wonderful advice from all of you. I have a few questions.

Tips: Are the guides, drivers, luggage handlers, etc. just as happy to receive tips in U.S. dollars as compared to kyats? Also, what is the recommended tip guideline?

Dress code: Can men wear shorts and short- sleeve knit collared shirts in the pagodas and elsewhere? Also, do you recommend long-sleeve shirts and long pants at Inle Lake to reduce mosquito bites?

Communication: Do hotels have internet access, or are there internet cafes?
Are there places where one can make international phone calls?

Malarone: Do most travel docs recommend Malarone for Bagan and Inle Lake, even in the dry season?

Any other advice is welcome and appreciated. Thank you very much.
