Travel Essentials When Visiting Myanmar

I traveled to Yangon and Bagan a few months ago. It was indeed one the best travel experiences ever!

Here’s a list of the must-have travel essentials that you shouldn’t forget when you’re planning to visit Myanmar:

1. Cap / Hat / Visor

The weather in Yangon and Myanmar are extremely hot! Use a hat or a cap or a visor to protect your face from harmful rays.

2. Sunblock lotion / cream

Apply sunblock lotion or cream on your face and body before leaving your hotel. Repeat after every 3-4 hours.

3. Facial Mist

Spray facial mist on your face before applying sunblock cream. It cools you down and helps keep your skin hydrated.

4. Sunglasses

(See tip #1)

5. A small backpack

6. Flip flops or a pair of sneakers which are easy to take off and put on

No shoes are allowed inside every temple. You are supposed to walk barefoot in temples and temple grounds.

7. Water bottle

The heat of the scorching sun may cause you to dehydrate. Drink plenty of water in between temple hopping.

8. Scarf

You can use a scarf to put around your neck or put on your head to protect it from the sun.

9. Facial Tissue / Wet Wipes

If you’re a super clean person, you may want to clean your feet using wet wipes after entering the stupas. Also, there are dusty trails around Bagan and you can use them to clean your hands too.

10. Comfortable clothing

Wear casual lightweight clothing but don’t forget to bring a light sweater when traveling during the cooler months of December to February. As a sign of respect, don’t wear shorts or tank tops when entering religious buildings.

11. A small torch. You can use this when climbing up stupas

12. Sunburn relief and first aid kit

13.Camera and extra batteries

Happy travels!
