What's the right amount of cash to bring to Burma?

Jump to last reply

I realize the question is completely subjective...but, as a rule of thumb, what is the "right" amount of money to account for per day in Burma?

All of our hotels and car service will be pre-paid already when we arrive.

Figure we'll need cash on-hand for random taxis here and there, entrance fees, food and drink, guide fees (we won't have a guide *every* day), gifts/shopping and any other miscellaneous costs that may arise on a 10-day trip.

I hate the idea of carrying copious amounts of cash with me ANYWHERE, but realize I have to in Burma.

Also, do most hotels have safes to store said amounts of cash? I sure hope so.
