The currency in Myanmar is "Kyat". Kyat come in notes (no coins) of value K50, K100, K200, K500, K1000, K5000 and K10.000. Until recent government reforms, it was necessary for visitors to Myanmar to change money on the black market in order to get a reasonable exchange rate. You can get now a good exchange rate at banks and official money exchanges. Money changers on the street should be avoided, as they are likely to scam you. In bigger cities, there are more and more ATMs available. Creditcard payment is possible in bigger hotels, but not in small guesthouses.
