Myanmar Currency Information for Indian Travelers
The Burmese Kyat (K) is the official currency used today in Myanmar. You would find Kyat is presently released in banknotes (no coin used in Myanmar) of value at K1, K5, K10, K20, K50, K100, K200, K500, K1.000, K5.000 and K10.000.
The notes of Burmese Kyat have something related to Myanmar culture imprinted on them. The backside of each note shows a famous landmark, attraction or an important person in Myanmar history. For example, in the front of the 1000 Kyat Banknote shows Chinthe and the back shows the liberator Aung San who is considered as the father of the nation.
Together with Myanmar Kyat, the US dollar is also widely used in Myanmar while transacting at hotels, luxurious restaurants, and flights, etc. This way would benefit from a better rate.
On the other hand, for smaller purchases such as taxis, buses, or mid-range meal payment, paying in Myanmar Kyat is preferred.
