    I'd go for MPT- I just switched over from Orreedo which had become unusable. MPT now has 4g and I am able to video call locally and internationally, stream videos and do some moderate downloading for work. You should be able to get it at the airport or failing that any mobile phone shop- take your passport just in case they ask for it.

    Very good all over the country, ( i even had service while on the Irrawaddy an Chindwin rivers) sim internet is 90% of the time faster than any hotels wifi. Even fast enough to watch you tube video's
    get an MPT sim card ( under $2.0) and add at least 7,000 kyat and apply for the 5, 5000 kyat 2 gig program. plenty to last ya 2 weeks

    According to this you can get 20Gb for $22, + 6Gb free Faceachebook and Youtube.

    That should do me.

    Will be taking some VR stuff, so need a chunk of bandwidth.

    360-degree pictures and video shot in 4K.

    It uses a lot of data.

    For $22, who gives a fuck?

    That's very reasonable.

    1Gb can cost you $10 in the US.

    According to FB this time last year I was hiking in Shan State- would rather be there than in Mandalay now. My supervisor is getting married and has whatever the male equivalent of being Bridezilla is. Doing my effing head in, but I digress- here are some pics.

    That is lovely - reminiscent of photos of Kashmir - I guess the climate and scenery is similar.

    ^ Bagan is a lovely place, I'd also recommend you do a trip to Inle lake,too. You'd be better flying into Mandalay as it is closer to both Inle and Bagan. Taungyyi is also close to Inle and I think it is one of the most underrated places in Myanmar.

    ^Great information! I'll have to look into Taungyyi and Inle. I'll definitely fly into Myanmar. I'd green people, but I can't see to green yet.

    i was in Inle lake this past april and was very disappointed ( first time i have been in Myanmar)
    granted the lake is beautiful but the nearby town is not, most back packers i have seen in one place outside Khao san road and the only place i have been hassled to buy tours and the ONLY market ( off the lake) i have visited that had goods excursively for tourists. lots of backpacker style places to drink and eat as well if thats what ur looking for.
