"TEMPLE VISITS. At some pagodas..." Myanmar (Burma) Local Custom Tip by Ric

Myanmar (Burma) Local Customs: 149 reviews and 220 photos

TEMPLE VISITS. At some pagodas and stupas, women are not allowed in certain areas. Be aware of this possibility, observe the signs (usually in both Burmese and English), and bite your tongue! Interestingly the frequency and degree of restriction seem to vary from region to region.
