Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Myanmar

Formerly Burma, Myanmar is an extraordinary country. From its gilded pagodas to the Golden Rock at Mount Kyaiktiyo, Myanmar's ancient history and culture is overwhelming. Re-establishing itself on the tourist trail, Myanmar is made up over 100 different ethnic groups and can feel like a beautiful step back in time. At the same time, its cities are rapidly modernizing the country, from the colonial city of Yangon (formerly Rangoon) to the royal city of Mandalay. Myanmar has one of the fastest growing economies in the world, following wide political reform and advances in human rights, business and technology. The resource-rich country is seeing an impressive rate of economic revival. Starting a business in Myanmar may be a challenge, but the number of expats working for multinational companies in some of the country's large cities is increasing. The cost of living in Myanmar is low, and next to foreign assignees there are also many expats that move to the country in order to teach English.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Egypt or Kuwait, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
