What To Budget for Myanmar

In the sixth post in our ongoing series “What to Budget” we detail our spending during our 24 nights in Myanmar. In the following category breakdown we provide per day costs and major influencing expenses if any.

Not unlike other mainland Southeast Asian countries Myanmar is very cheap. However, due to the recent explosion of tourism in the country there is a shortage of accommodations meaning prices for guesthouses are much higher than the rest of Southeast Asia.

Have you planned your trip yet? Make sure to take a look at our popular sample itinerary in our post “2 Weeks in Myanmar”.
