Burma What to Pack: 42 reviews and 38 photos
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In the rainy season you definitely need an umbrella. A raincoat can be useful but i (and all Burmese with me) swear by the umbrella. That and shoes/sandals that can stand an enormous amount of water.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Good mosquito repellent!! In every season there are mosquitoes here. And they are not of the tiny size either.
If you're attached to a special brand of toothpaste/deodorant etc. Definitely bring it. You can find western brands (imported via China/Thailand or Singapore) but don't bet on them having the one you want.
For the ladies: sanitary napkins are of the mattress-kind here. And tampons i saw the other day in the City Mart (at the Yankin centre) but there were so few packs that i wouldn't be surprised if they run out of them on a regular basis.
