it is better to bring the newest $100 bill printed with blue stripe USD and good chance to good exchange rate than old print USD,although pristine older notes are accepted.Pls remind them also NOT TO have the serial nos of CB (pre2006) in USD 100 notes, serial nos of AB in USD 50 notes., and, old, dirty,torn or marked USD notes.
There are now (Jan 2014) many International ATM's in towns,hotels and at most airports that take UnionPay, Plus, Cirrus, Mastercard and Visa Cards and issue kyats.. Do note however that there is a fixed charge of 5000 kyats (plus your own CC charge) which makes small withdrawals expensive. The underlying exchange rate before the Kyats 5,000 charge and your own bank's charge is similar to the rates you will get in a hotel. Better to change $'s (see first comments) at the official Bank changers at airports or downtown-all have official Government rates DO NOT change $'s on the street!
