How it works:
- Step 1: a local claims to be a collector of foreign currency and asks where you come from. He then offers to exchange kyats with notes/coins from your country. A poor rate is used.
- Step 2: next, he tells another tourist that he cannot use the foreign currency in Myanmar. He then proposes to exchange the note to Kyat at a good rate for himself.
Places to beware:
- Bagan: Bagan Temples
