before take off from KLIA
Yangon Intl Airport

My husband Joe and I arrived at Yangon International Airport at 1310pm and hired a cab to Yangon Hotel (*****) which was about 10 minutes drive from the airport.
The weather was warm in the afternoon and rainy towards evening.
The meals were less spicier than Thai food but tasty.
The people were nice and obliging. And we had a good 10 days stay, visiting Tuwunna stadium, Shwedagaon Pagoda, Scott Market @ Bogyoke Aung San Market, Tribal houses of Myanmar etc.
