What is Myanmar currency?


The Myanmar currency is Kyats (pronounced "chats"). The official exchange rate to the USD is about 6:1. This exchange rate, however, is just pro-forma. We recommend visitors to bring US Dollars cash (small denomination notes) which are widely accepted throughout Myanmar and are easily exchangeable for the local currency. It is however possible to exchange US Dollars for Foreign Exchange Certificates (FEC) at the rate of 1 for 1.
