Money can be changed at the airport for a fair price however do remember that crisp new looking bills are the best. While it’s no longer advisable to use black market money changers they might be the only people who will change older bills but you won’t get as much for them. There are ATMs at the airport which should work with Visa, Mastercard, PLUS or Cirrus systems, but don’t rely on this. Do remember that you will be able to spend dollars for larger purchases without having to exchange.
Both arrival and departures have a few places to eat, take-away, sit down and coffee too.
There is both duty-free and shopping at the airport but it is expensive and you are likely better to have done your shopping before you get to the airport.
There is a USD10 departure tax which should be included in the cost of your flight already.
You can buy Sim cards at the airport and in Yangon for around USD1.50. MPT is the oldest and most widespread provider. Ooredoo and Telenor came online in late 2014 and their services can be patchy. All networks become patchy in rural areas.
