Insider Tip

Don’t pay more than 2,000 Kyat from Ocean Pearl to central downtown Yangon … 4,000 Kyat to 19th Street for dinner … 5,000 Kyat to Kiplings ‘Winking Wonder’ … simply walk to the historic Botataung Pagoda … buy a local prepaid SIM ($1.50 USD) card for your smartphone around the corner from the Ocean Pearl … don’t take a small boat across the river … take the larger river ferry in the downtown area … carry a flashlight at night in case of a brown-out … and don’t worry … Yangon is a very friendly city … and SAFE!!! … unless as always, you do something stupid !!!
