I'm spending 4 weeks in Myanmar and trying to figure out approximately how much cash I might need in advance (by advance I mean at the airport on arrival) and in total (topping up via ATM where possible). And the split between how much of that should be kyat and how much US dollars and when it might be possible to use a credit card.
I'm assuming all buses, taxis, food will be in Kyat.
I'm staying in hotels in the $30-$50 range, what's the chance of any of these taking credit card as payment? If not I presume Kyat will be needed for payment for these too.
I'm assuming ATMs and money exchange will be no problem to find in the main touristic places, but will any of these less touristic places have readily availability of ATMs:
- Hpa An
In case I can't find an ATM, or my card doesn't work, might I be able to find dollar to kyat money exchange places in the above 4.
