    Dollars are the main currency used in Myanmar but make sure you bring new crispy bills or they wont take them. You will get the best exchange rate for one hundred dollar bills. As far as where to exchange money, pretty much anywhere. Yangon airport has two money changing kiosks, which have same rate as elsewhere in Yangon.

    Yes, this is true. Bring all your money in US $'s and make sure the bills are unmarked and in excellent condition, as hotel accommodations, banks, etc will be reluctant to deal with damaged notes. I suggest also that you keep some small kyat notes (K50, K100, K200) for tipping at restaurants or giving donations at monasteries.
