Travel tips

Myanmar is extremely safe. Crime, especially against foreigners, is severely punished. Even petty crime, such as pick-pocketing, is rare. Visitors do not need to be concerned about wearing backpacks or carrying open-top tote bags or purses. The Burmese, many of whom are devout Buddhists, are markedly friendly; however, you may be "robbed" by paying too much for a taxi or jade at the markets.

It is advisable to keep photocopies of essential travel documents such as your passport, credit card numbers and airline tickets in a secure place apart from the originals. You should also keep valuables in hotel safety deposit boxes if provided, wear minimal jewelry and keep cash secure to your body.
