    Monthly rent varies upon area – doing some research ahead of time is recommended.

    Basic necessities (bedroom and bathroom items)

    • There are a large variety of basic western necessities available in Yangon at a low cost. If you’re planning on bringing some essentials, please note that there are airline restrictions on many items for either checked or carry-on bags.
      This usually includes weight restrictions, liquids, some electronics – refer to your airline
    • Deodorant and lotions can be difficult to find and is not available in all stores
      Many lotions contain whitening agents.

    Cell phone

    • Obtaining a new SIM card and/or phone is a relatively simple process after arriving
      If you bring your existing phone, be sure it is “unlocked” or free from contract restrictions.
    Packing efficiently will save you a lot of time, money and frustration when you arrive in Yangon. For the most part, you will be able to find most toiletries, OTC medicines, and common household items, such as dishes, towels, etc., here in Myanmar. If you have specific medical needs, make sure to inform your doctor of your intent to move abroad.

    WOMEN: Feminine hygiene products such as tampons, are not readily available in most shops. You can, however, purchase them online or seek out one of the many shops around Yangon that specialize in foreign goods.
    When packing clothes, think essentials. There are hundreds of shopping malls in Yangon with popular brands.

    Yes! Before booking a ticket, do your research on airlines by reading reviews about seats, movies, and airline staff service. Check your airline ahead of time for any and all restrictions.

    Ticket price is directly linked to comfort for many airlines. Also, Invest in a neck-pillow for the long flight from your hometown to Yangon. Not only will this keep you comfortable, but also save you neck from unnecessary strain. During the flight, try to stand up several times in the aisle to stretch your legs and back. This will make your flight as pleasant as possible.

    Try to wear comfortable, durable clothing. Plan for security checkpoints and for long-periods of sitting and waiting. Belts, loose change, hats and portable electronics can be a hassle at security checkpoints. Store nearly everything you will need for the flight in your carry-on bag and have your laptop, if you have one, easily accessible to remove for security checks. The more prepared you are for the on-boarding process in the airport, the smoother the transition will be. Plan for function, not fashion.

This is best done ahead of time, before boarding the plane to Yangon.
