"Internet cafe's" Top 5 Page for this destination Myanmar (Burma) Favorite Tip by Mique
Myanmar (Burma) General: 190 reviews and 207 photos
Favorite thing: Internet is always an issue with people who come here (or people who live here for that matter). It can be incredibly slow (i've had a few times when just reading an email took me almost an hour and this was not with a dial-up connection). The internet connection is best in the early morning and late in the evening. During the day speed drops dramatically.
Most (though not all) internet cafes can help you get to your email. Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail are officially banned. So are sites like BBC news, CNN, Blogger and such. But as said before, internet cafes can usually help you to access these sites anyway.
2 good internet cafe's in downtown Yangon are Motherhome (next to the Mya Shan guesthouse) and the Castle. Both are on the street from Sule to Kandawgy Lake/Shwe Dagon. And at both places you can use your own laptop. An easier to find, but definitely not a good internet cafe is Cyber world (next to Aroma on the same street). Highly overprices with bad service and bad connections (and no laptop facilities).
In Mandalay there are several decent internet cafes but in Bagan and Inle Lake you'll pay a lot for a dial-up connection. But if you really need to connect to the internet it is better then nothing...
Me, i usually go to New World in the Pearl Center (Palei) but it is too far away for anyone staying downtown.
