Myanmar Expat Guide
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.
Make Friends and Build Your Expat Network before You Arrive in Myanmar
