How much cash?

Posted by cblackie on 7/6/2014 at 04:07

Hello all

I'll be travelling to Burma for two weeks in July. I have booked and paid for all but a couple of nights accommodation through Agoda, have paid in advance for three internal flights and will have more than one Australian Visa/Mastercard/ATM card with me.

With that in mind, and considering how rapidly the situation with financial services (credit card acceptance, ATMs, etc) is changing, I'm wondering if any recent visitors to Burma could offer any advice as to whether I'd still be wise to carry a backup supply of USD? If so, any suggestions on how much would be a minimum?
