Yangon International Airport
It's around 5 PM when my flight reached Yangon International Airport. For an International airport, we can say this place look quiet. I just need 10 minute to grab my baggage , enter the imigration for visa and security check than i can walk out. Yes , even we are good neighbour, anIndonesian like me still need apply and pay for visa to enter this country.
Yangon International airport is 15 km away from the center of the city. The only one option that we can choose is rent the taxi. I decide to stay in downtown area. Why...?. Because downtown is strategic area for tourist like me. Near the hotel,market, money changer, food , and the important mostly sightseeing is available around the downtown area.
I'm lucky, because my hotel just charge 5$ for pickup taxi from the airport to downtown with AC inside. It's little bit luxurious, mostly normal taxi in Yangon without AC.
Note : If you not have pick up facility from your hotel, better if you walk out from the airport and stop taxi from outside because taxi in airport will give you little bit expensive price. For taxi you can pay with the US $, and the price is around 8 - 10 $ (from airport to downtown area).
