Greetings,

In the absence of any replies from anyone in Myanmar, will be traveling there next week to see what the accommodation situation is really like. Will also be interviewing at language centers and business colleges (my preference) to see what kind of remuneration can be expected.

Thanks again to Teachurrr for the list of schools. Perhaps I can add to it.

Long time reader of Dave's but only recently started contributing. Happy to try and answer any questions regarding cheap accommodation, language center work and business colleges while there or upon my return later in December.

Will not be interviewing for jobs at primary, secondary or any kind of international schools, so cannot be of any help there.

-Fin

Sounds great! Any info you can provide will be much appreciated.

Are you still in Vientiane? I assume you have to fly to Yangon from Bangkok, right?

From what I've heard, things are still very restricted there in terms of internet, phones, vehicles in the city center, curfews, socializing, accommodation, etc.

Looking forward to your report...

Yeah, I'd love an update.

I read that the government strictyl controls interaction between the natives and foreigners.

Also, is their a curfew?
What time?
I heard everything shuts down at 9.
What happens to those who break it?
Is it lights out?

I also heard that no motobikes allowed in Yangon.
That actually might be a good thing.
