  2. Hi Jessica,
    I might be moving to either Bangladesh or Myanmar for work and since you lived in both, I thought I would get your opinion. I’ll be there to help grow an online booking company for hotels. Any advice you can give would be helpful.


  3. Hi Jessica
    Thank you for all the tips you provide which is very useful to me. I wanted to buy Teak furniture for export from Yangon. Is it feasible and where can i buy hand made furniture in Yangon. Is there any restriction to export furniture from yangon? pls advise

    1. Hi Tommy. Sorry for my delay. You can buy teak furniture from Teak Villa on Kabar Aye Pagoda Road and i am sure there are many other alternatives, especially in Tarme Township. There are bans on exporting raw timber but i think it’s okay for furniture – you’d to check carefully though. There are restrictions on antiques, for example… Best of luck, Jess

  4. Hi Jessica, I got a glimpse of your blog when I just randomly googled “souvenirs for going-away expats in Yangon” and realized you could be a great person to ask this advice from! So I have an expat colleague who’s leaving Myanmar soon and I wanted to give him/his family a memorable gift but fall short of ideas…. It’s a family that has traveled to more places in Myanmar than I do (and I’m a local – shame on me), traveled to lots of other countries and has many lacquerware, furniture from Jamie’s, traditional clothes, etc, etc. sitting around in their house. So here I’m brainstorming myself what would a good memorable gift for this family and hoping that a globetrotter living in Myanmar like you could give me some thoughts ….. Hopefully you see this and want to share some ideas! Thank you lots xx

    1. Hi there, thanks for reading and what a privilege for a local like yourself to ask ME that question! The timing for your idea is good because a new store at Bogyoke Market just opened and it has fantastic and unusual things – it’s traditional Myanmar mixed with vintage pop art. I interviewed the creative director for Mizzima last week – you can read about Yangoods here and there is a link to their Facebook page also –
      Pomelo (next to Monsoon) also have really nice things, as well as Helping Hands in Yankin – or the glass factory, though it may be hard to transport glass! I hope your colleague loves whatever cool thing you choose – a very nice thing to do 🙂

  5. I’m looking to relocate to Myanmar, you wrote a while back that the internet is really expensive to connect at home, is this still the case? And the permanent phone number too? Thanks for any help!

    1. Hi Nicole. The good news is that permanent sim cards are easily available and cost a few dollars – telenoor and ooredoo have ended the mpt state monopoly. they offer cheap browsing on mobile phones, but home wifi connections with redlink is still expensive – we pay more than $100 every month. but that will change soon i believe. you can toggle from your phone to laptop also. good luck – i’m sure you’d enjoy yangon 🙂 jess

  6. Hi Jessica, I’ve been trying to contact for advise in foreign marriage matters in Bangladesh. Could you confirm whether you received my queries? Thanks.

    1. Hi Maurits. Sorry for the delay in replying – I hope my reply helped a bit and please let me know how things work out for you (perhaps in a comment so that other readers in a similar position can learn from your experience!). Best wishes, Jess

  7. Hi Jessica, thank you for addressing my name and contact number in Vet clinic of Yangon. could you please make a correction in my name. The correct one is Kyaw Naing Oo ( not Kyaw Na Oo) if you would like to contact me, here is my email address –

  8. Hi Jessica, your blog is very interesting and helpful. I have found so many details about life in Myanmar. May I ask you just a further suggestion? I will be travelling to Yangon at the beginning of August. Do you think it is feasible to stay only in Yangon and surrouning places? my doubt is: are there enough things to see and does the monsoon allows sightseeing? thank you for your help. Sumire

    1. hi sumire. i think you will have a great time and yangon has many, many things to see and there are some great day trips you could do also. definitely buy a copy of lonely planet – a new edition will be out very soon. in august it won’t rain all day and it’s actually quite beautiful. enjoy 🙂

  9. Hi Jessica,
    Cool blog! Thanks for writing! I’m an American with husband and two kids (8 and 10 years). I may have a chance at working at a school in Dhaka, but almost everything I read about Dhaka makes it sound horrible. Am I nuts to even consider transplanting a family to Dhaka? We have lived many years abroad (South America and Africa) but Dhaka sounds so much worse. Would you raise a family there?

    Thanks for your time

    1. Hi Joy
      The travel advice for Bangladesh from the Australian embassy was updated a couple of days ago to “reconsider your need to travel” – it’s really quite dangerous and politically unstable (the situation has deteriorated since I left in 2012). The people themselves are wonderful but Dhaka is very densely populated and I wrote an article about the traffic – apparently children can develop “learned helplessness syndrome” from it because they feel stuck all the time. There’s arsenic in the fruit and vegetables and the air quality is terrible, plus power cuts are severe in summer. there’s also quite a bit of crime against foreigners (read “Mugged, dragged and scarred” if you’re up to it!) So I guess I wouldn’t say it’s a good place to raise a family unfortunately… Best wishes, Jessica

    2. I escaped from Dhaka when I was 18. I went back with my Canadian wife in 1996 and 2000 and alone a few times. My mom and all sisters are there but I would not consider moving back with my son even for a year. It is truly one of the worst cities with rampant pollution and corruption. The recent surge in political violence has made it abominable.

  10. Hi Jessica, It was a great relief for me to find your blog. I needed some information on Myanmar and you have answered almost all my questions. Thanks to you. I will be in touch with you shortly if everything goes as per plan and I show up in Yangon 🙂

  11. Hello Jessica,
    Good to see an Aussie in Myanmar, sharing her experience as well as inspiring travelers via blog. I am Anand, a Sydney-sider, and a follower of your blog.
    I seek your help and advice. I am in negotiation for a job of IT faculty/Training Consultant in Masters Course in Yangon and going to relocate to Yangon. Would you mind helping me about living costs, current/average salary for such a vacancy and other challenges?
    I would really appreciate your time and advice. Also, if you feel appropriate, reply on my email.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Anand

      I’m sure you’ll enjoy Yangon. I have a blog entry called Jessica top tips for Yangon, which contains some of the info you’re looking for. the best bet though is to join Yangon Expat Connection, because it has a wealth of information. I included instructions for joining in the post I mentioned.
      Good luck!

  12. HI,
    jessica. I can be a guide for them who want’s to come in Bangladesh and need to know our country and we can exchange our culture. So, Do you have any idea how i can do that ?


    1. Hi Jeet
      I live in Myanmar now but I’m sure people visiting Bangladesh would be keen to have you as a guide. Maybe you could start a blog about Bangladesh and list that you’d like to be a guide, so that people can find you on Google?
      Best wishes, Jessica

  13. Hello Jessica,

    I really like your blog, especially the post about Ngapali Beach.
    I have been a few times there and you are right, it’s paradise and not many people know about it. And when I thought it couldn’t be better, I went diving (1 hour by boat from the beach) down to 17 meters and it was amazing!
    I have lived in Myanamar and travelled all around the country taking pictures and now I’m doing a photoblog I would like to share with you and everybody.

    Please Like & Share.


  14. Dear Jessica, I have just stumbled upon your blog while doing some research on Bangladesh where I will be traveling in less than a month! Really impressed by your experience there! I would like to know what your recommendations would be for someone coming in from China for just 10 days. We are two girls in our twenties, living and working in Beijing and we’ll be traveling on our own. Any particular tips or recommendations? Thanks in advance for your help!

    1. Hi Daphne

      I’m sure you’ll have a really interesting trip. I’d definitely recommend buying Bangladesh Lonely Planet for planning an itinerary. The Sundarbans are nice, as are the tea gardens in Sylhet. In Dhaka I’d recommend staying at Sky Park Guesthouse. Dhaka’s traffic is pretty tough, so don’t plan too much in a day. Going down the river from Old Dhaka is really great and you can hop off anywhere you like to take pics.
      Have fun!

      1. Greetings, Jessica!
        I’m so happy to have come across your blog while searching for where to stay while visiting Bangladesh. I live in the USA and have never been, this will be my first time. I’m planning a summer trip to stay for two weeks. —- My family is worried because I will be traveling alone and they feel it is NOT safe. I’m a Hispanic-Italian woman in her thirties who’s ready to do this. I’m looking to stay in either Dhaka or Jessore, depending on where my friend, who lives in Bangladesh, will be residing at the time. I have a poetry/creative writing blog on here as well.
        I would love some advice as to which hotels to stay in…I would be so grateful.
        I’m more than happy and thrilled for you marrying the man you Love.
        ~ Elizabeth

        1. hey elizabeth, sorry for the delay. i have to brief because i’m running late again (!) but just wanted to recommend sky park guesthouse in dhaka’s banani. i haven’t been to jessore so i’m no help with that, sorry. do be really careful in dhaka – it’s not very safe. but you will be okay if you don’t wander around late at night and stay aware of your belongings etc. it’s a fantastic country, enjoy. i’ll check out your blog too 🙂
