No Credit cards  are accepted.

CREDIT CARDS & TRAVELLER CHEQUES
Not widely use in our country except the International Hotels & a few souvenir shops in Yangon & Mandalay cities. Traveller Cheques can only be changed at the central bank of Myanmar in Yangon during office hour. It will be more convenient for the clients to bring in the US$ cash.
Due to recent sanctions of U.S to Myanmar Government, all the credit cards are not possible to use around the country since 01 Sept'03. So, the travellers are recommended to carry hard cash for their own using amount.

PAYMENT
We perefer either TT or cash on arrival as credit card payment take a long time to declare back the money into our account due poor banking system. 50% of the tour cost or minimum of USD 200 per person is needed to deposite into our account by TT once the tour package is confirmed. The rest of the payment should be made at least 14 days before the group or clients' arrival.
