Myanmar (Burma) Warnings and Dangers: 85 reviews and 81 photos

The officials at the FEC counters have become quite greedy in their demand for bribes. They wanted $10 to allow the two of us to exchange $200 instead of $400. As, we stayed 3 weeks, and took 2 inland flights, it was totally unnessesary for us to pay this money, as we definatly spent more than $400. Think about your planned budget before handing over your bribe money.
