| This review is for Terminal 1. Terminal 2 is dramatically different. RGN has undergone vast changes during the last 10 years. There remain remnants of the underdeveloped facility that once was, but the outside world has arrived in Yangon, and at least as far as the airport is concerned, it is a good thing. Customs/Immigration at both arrival and departure is reasonably fast. On the absolute worst day, you might wait 30 minutes, but an average wait will be 10 minutes or less. Lines at check in counters move quickly, which is terrific. Departure lounges are a lot nicer than they once were. Now they sport clean, comfortable spaces, dependable WiFi, and food that works in a pinch. Restaurants in the airport are not great, but if you want a decent cup of coffee, some KFC, a Burger King something or other, you’ll be ok. Souvenir and duty free shops still have a long way to do. Alcohol and cigarettes are fairly priced. There are perennially empty luxury clothing brands without customers. There are a couple of small boutiques selling attractive textiles, carvings, local bath products, delicious local coffees, etc. Services are generally more than adequate in the pre-departure areas. There is a bag wrapping counter for flimsy luggage, convenience stores, plenty of seating, free WiFi, etc. Taxis downtown should be priced out before you leave. Money Change desks offer the exact same rate as all the other places in the country, so there’s no reason to hold on to your foreign currency. The airport is still a work in progress, but leaving and arriving in this amazing city is a lot less unpleasant than a few years back.
