In Myanmar, like in every foreign countries, it is necessary to know the customs of the land and the “do’s and don’t” while travelling. Respect is the word!
Covering up and taking shoes off while visiting holy places is an obligation, and most respectful to the monks and the locals. When taking photos of ordinary people or monks, kindly ask if it is ok. Most locals will be delighted to pose for you, but never take a person in uniform like policemen or soldiers.
Tipping is usual as in most countries and is based on the good service provided. It can be given to the porters, the waiters, guides and drivers.
Important: Please do not give money out of compassion to little kids or beggars. It would tilt the family balance and enticed people to beg. Please refer to your guide if in doubts.
