Health

Before you come, check your vaccination status. Consult with your government’s website on health or your doctor.

Get Health Insurance. Health insurance is not available in Myanmar.

Public health care in Myanmar would not be at Western-standard. The best is to call your embassy who can direct you to the best place. Beware that Western-style health care would not be cheap.

Carry some medications for diarrhea as diarrhea is the most common problem.

If you feel sick, do not wast time. Go to nearest quality health facility. All doctors in Myanmar are trained in English.

Drink plenty of water and wear light clothing in hot and humid weather.

Stay away from narcotic drugs. Drugs are illegal in Myanmar.

Practise safe sex. Prostitution is illegal in Myanmar.
