ENTERTAINMENT

There is not much in the way of western style entertainment in Myanmar but Yangon has some good western restaurants and there are a few bars and nightclubs, notably in the city's international hotels. In the rest of the country entertainment is mainly confined to some good Chinese and Burmese restaurants and the ubiquitous teashops.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS

Before your arrival in Myanmar, after your tour is confirmed GOLDEN BROTHERS AND SISTERS TRAVELS & TOURS can send you the list of all hotels used in Myanmar with their e-mail address, fax number, phone number, and address in every town. But some hotels like in Kalaw, Pindaya and Inle, as these are remote places. There is only phone to contact. Most of the 3 stars and above hotels in Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Inle, Ngapali and Ngwesaung have internet email access. And there are numbers of internet cafe around in Yangon, Mandalay and Taunggyi. But, Yahoo, Hot Mail, Gmail and most of the free email accounts are banned in Myanmar. But, some of the internet cafes have the way to past the government fire wall.

FOOD & DRINKS

Myanmar cuisine uses rice or noodles as staple dishes, usually served with a variety of side dishes: curries with meat or fish, vegetables, salads, soup, condiments etc. Myanmar curries tend to be less chili-hot than those served in Thailand. In order to give travelers a true feeling for the Myanmar, Restaurant and food are carefully selected for hygiene as well as gastronomic considerations. Meals & drinks at International Hotels are considerably expensive. There are many good local restaurants with almost the same quality of food and hygiene as hotels but at reasonable prices.

Most of the restaurants in the major cities serve various dishes of Chinese, European, Thai and Indian cuisine. Myanmar dishes are oily, sour, salty and spicy. There are also a wide variety of local snacks and delicacies. Mouk-hin-kha (thin rice noodles served with fish gravy) and Ohn-noh-khauk-swe (noodles served with chicken chunks and coconut gravy) are the most popular in Myanmar. Shan food and delicacies also are available. Shan style of cooking belongs neither to Myanmar nor Chinese nor Thai cuisine but they taste really good in their own way.
