Under ConstructionArrived late evening in Yangon on a Jetstar Airline flight from Singapore November 2016. The cost was US$70 for a one way ticket. I had a E-visa for Myanmar which I bought for $50 on line. The immigration and customs is quick and easy with no long lines.
I changed money at the Airport and took a taxi to my hotel, the cost of the taxi was $10, friendly cab driver and they spoke good English.
Tip: Taxis have no meters, most cab drivers will ask a fair price.
Myth: There are no ATM, what baloney, there are ATMs everywhere.
Safety: Myanmar is very safe, I was taking cabs in the middle of the night with no issues.
Things to do in Yangon
This is possibly the number one attraction in Yangon. I took a cab for US$2 from my hotel to get to the Pagoda, the whole complex is huge, entrance ticket for foreigners is US$ 8.
Give yourself 2 hours to see the whole complex.
This Pagoda is right in the middle of Downtown Yangon, I went there once during the day and once in the night to take night photos.
The first picture above is the Sule Pagoda, second picture is the The Maha Bandula Park, walking distance from the Pagoda with Independence Monument, an obelisk in commemoration of Burmese independence from the British in 1948
