The following photos were taken during a 10-day journey through Myanmar (Burma). Get enchanted with this visual journey through Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, Inle Lake and other magical places. Thanks to Alex, Conni and Florian.
The currency in Myamar – Kyat:
Even though the official exchange rate is about 7 Kyat for a US Dollar, the actual black market value of the Kyat is a lot less. The best rate we got was 930 Kyat for a US Dollar in Yangon but it went down to 750 Kyat along the journey (October/November 2010). Make sure you have dollar notes in near perfect condition otherwise they won’t get accepted!
