Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review by Patrick) Yangoon does have Atms at the Airport now however be sure to till your Bank your going to Myammar are your cards won't work. I told my bank I was going to Myammar and my card still didn't work ! Myammar is on a list with many banks prohibiting there debit cards being used there. Also no one takes travelers check Fortunately I still had dome Thai baht on me I was able to change at money changers in downtown Yangoon. Also when you get out of the International terminal take a taxi from where the Taxi sign is thats the official taxi stand, they have much nicer taxi with working aircon, they have other guys waiting in the terminal who will try to hustle you to ride with them the price is about the same but there taxis are old and many dont have aircon price should be between 6000 and 9000 kyat depending on where your continued >>

Excellent Decision!

by kcdavis711 (February, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: Kind guards, and lots of spots to strech out
Cons: not open 24 hours

They are not open 24 hours, but close from I think midnight until 4 or 5 in the morning. I had gotten in at 1:30AM on a bus with a flight out at 9am so I decided to just sleep at the airport. Even though the guard couldn't let me in, I slept just outside, in a well let area near the door. The guard was very friendly and kept an eye on me, he even came out and lit a misquito coil for me! I felt safe. Then once the doors opened, I moved to one of several decent sleeping spots in the main lobby. I slept so well, I woke up to the lobby full of travelers!

It's possible to sleep there but...

by turistimonium (December, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: Normally empty during the night. Free Internet.
Cons: Noisy and cold.

It's possible to sleep in the airport. It's not forbidden by the government!! They let you sleep in the Main Lobby, before the check in counters. But it's noisy and cold. The good thing is that there are less people during the night so you can find your place and charge your devices. Free WiFi but it's necesary to log in every 15 minutes...

It was impossible to sleep in theis ariport as they closed it. Although once through the check in point there is a small internet cafe that has the best cappucinos in all of Myanmar.

Don't even go there!

by super budget traveller (May, 2008)

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside and Airside

Don't even think about passing a night at the Yangon Int'l Airport, because they don't let you stay at the airport overnight. The security guards kick you out from the airport before 10pm. The airport close during the night time. I had an early morning flight with Air Asia, so I decided to stay at the airport for the night before. I got to the airport by 7pm, but around 10pm I get kicked out from the airport by the airport security guards. I begged to stay at the airport, but the airport officials said that 'it's forbidden by the government'. I stayed overnight at over 20 airports, but I've never get kicked out from the airport. This was the first time ever, and never happened since. So don't even think about going there at night! You'll end up coming back to the city. (They don't even let you stay outside of the airport!) I hate the g continued >>
