For most country as visas necessary organised these online only condition was to to Yangon Internatinal airport.
Everybody's luggage arrived in part. We've got local sim cards from Telenor directly on the airport only issue was this mobile network was under construction what mean there were covered only Yangon and Manadalay : (
 Telenor staff were really patient and helpful even with very basic english.
Next day we have done sightseeing in da Yangon city was so National Museum was unluckily closed, went to Museum counter nobody was there looked unused for longer time finally met somebody of staff who were kind of removing items from there they also hardly but explained about the opening hours.
