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

As of September 2000, Internet connections are illegal except to the government and a few businesses. It is illegal to own an unregistered modem in Burma, and tourists have had their laptop computers taken and held at the airport until their departure. E-mail is available at some large hotels. All e-mails are read by military intelligence. It is very expensive to send photographs via e-mail. One foreign visitor was presented a bill for $2,000 (U.S.) after transmitting one photograph via a major hotel?s e-mail system.
