Favorite thing: One of the things i find most useful here in Burma is a fan. And it seems almost all women have one with them (and a fair few men). I have one in my bag, one in the baby bag, a few at school (the kids like to use them as well) and i use them on a regular basis to cool of a bit. I use the cheap plastic ones mostly since they're easy to carry around but i do have a really nice one (see picture) that i use too. It is made of sandal wood and smells very nice. These fans also make for nice souvenirs (they are sold at the Bogyoke market).

The fans are useful in busy buses, waiting areas that have no fan/aircon, when you have just walked outside and need some cooler air or any other situation when you need to cool of a bit.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
