    Luggage and bags: I ALWAYS CARRY A SMALL BACKPACK...HANDY IF HIRING A BICYCLE AS IT PREVENTS THEFT..

    MONEY!!!!!!

    Miscellaneous: There are NO ATM's in Myanmar. Take plenty of preferably US$$$ - to get you through your holiday. We met people who didn't know this, or ran out of money, and they had no choice but to pay up to 30% commission in hotels which took cards - if you could find one. It is a CASH country.

    Luggage and bags: Backpack

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Mandalay is cool in January, especially first thing in the morning and when the sun has left the sky. Take a couple of sweaters.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Take as much as you can with you.
    Malaria tablets, sunblock and insect repellants are a necessity.

    Photo Equipment: You will be able to get what you need from the larger towns such as Yangon and Mandalay.
