I am going to Yangon for a few days on business and holiday. If you like, you can join me.
I will fly from Singapore on the 8 Dec and then to Bkk. You book your own air tickets. Visa not required. I shall pick a hotel and let you know. You can use any airline and any hotel.
Likely, we have common meeting times, likely at breakfast, Lunch or dinner.
If you like, we can get to meet other long stay Singaporeans in Yangon. We may have to share costs to get them to come for lunch or dinner. You can talk business or you can talk sweet things.
Weather is dry mainly. And by Dec, it will be cool. If you have not been to Yangon before, this is one of last few countries open to the world. Come see before it becomes another HCMC or JB. There are beautiful famous temples, an exotic Chinatown with food you have not eaten since young, a booming city centre and a number of Singapore restaurants. I like street Myanmar food and it’s scented local tea.
Singaporeans staying there for years are many. Most lead their own life and business. The community is closed knit and many are well connected with other business.
Dates are not changeable. Plenty of large cockcroaches flying around in hotels and restaurants. Roads are dusty and rocky. Food, you may need to go to the rest room 5 mins after a drink. Bring your mama noodles. Credit cards are acceptable but not as common as you expect. USD is king. It’s Tiger beer is fantastic. Local beer, better still. There is entertainment but Yangon is not Bkk, Manila or Jakarta. Traffic jam is not unusual. And, do not expect your English to be understood everywhere.
So, if you are still interested, let me know. We meet there.
