Thanks for the info. I guess I should stock up on US1 dollar notes then. I have a heap already but they are not pristine crisp ones like the USD100 bills I have.

Can you pay entry fees in kyat???

Yes, but you generally get a better deal in USD. I'd bring both (exchange $ for some kyat when you arrive) You can use kyat for buying small items, paying for food, etc.

You better update your data before you post it.

Bago : Charged as Zone fees 10, it will cover the whole area.

Mt. Popa : No entrance fees at all

Salay : US$ 5

Mandalay : Zone fees 10 will cover Mandalay + Amarapura + Ava

If you go to Mingun or Sagaing another 3, for ( Mingun + Ava )

Monywa : Thanbodday 3, Phoe win taung 2, Shwe Ba taung 2.

Inle : US$ 5

Yes, they are constantly changing & it looks like I neglected to update a few of them.

Bottom line-

Tourists should be aware there are sufficient fees charged at these areas and to budget the extra cash for the visits. In addition, there are camera fees (usually under US$1, and that can be paid in kyat) Backpackers are especially surprised as $10 or more per day (usually more than accommodation!) adds up!

The prices will probably go up again within the year and I will re-post the entire thread.

Just got back from Myanmar and wanted to give you a "heads-up." I had several US dollars (varying denominations) refused because they were not in pristine condition. They do take that pretty seriously. Just wanted to let you know before you leave.

Shwe Nan Daw is known for its strict closing time. It is closed exactly at 6 PM. So, you better be not later than that. It usually opens at 8:00 AM.

Starting from this season 2013-2014, Bagan Zone fees & Inle Zone fees increase to 15 USD & 10 USD respectively. Another update to welcome is that you can pay the zone fees in Kyats (local currency) starting from this season. And I guess, in no time, all the entrance fees are also payable in Kyats also. I will update it once I get the information.
