Re: Is Inya Lake a good place to meet girls?

Burma isn't really for that scene, local girls with foreign men is still taboo (well it was when I was there). You'd be better off going to Cambodia if looking for this sort of thing.

Re: Burma can overtake Singapore in 20 years

Only if the junta can stop the cronyism and corruption and give foreign investors a level playing field (not selling out to the Chinese).

Re: Hello everyone I am considering coming to Myanmar for work

Most of expats I know works for NGOs. Yes you can teach but there are few schools that can afford foreign teachers and those that do demand good qualifications. At the moment Cambodia is a lot easier and more welcoming to foreign workers, Burma has a long way to go. Banking and money is easy, there ...

I have no idea on availability and prices in Burma though, Thailand next door has thousands of co...
