It took less than 15 minutes to proceed from the plane to the taxi. Amazing. With the bad press this country gets I had expected worse. Immigration friendly and fast. The baggage was on the belt the moment I arrived. Customs were friendly and helpful. I declared my laptop as valuable goods but they said that was not necesary. After customs the porters rush in to help you with your luggage. There is no escape from that so keep a few dollars in hand for these men. A dollar per suitcase seems to be the rate. You can't use your cellphone in Burma for international calls but since December 2008 you can buy prepaid simcards for 20 USD that allow you 15 minutes overseas calling. Ask at the airport where you can buy them. Same smooth procedure on the way back. Porters will take your suitcase right up to the check in for a dollar. Immigration was friendly wishing me a happy new year! There is a small lounge for business class travellers. Descent choice of beverages and snacks (warm and cold). A new and very clean little airport. I was impressed.
