Visitors will not cause offense if they note a few things: Remove shoes and socks before entering religious buildings and compounds. Some monasteries allow food-wear in the compound but not inside the buildings, starting with lowest step! Better make sure first. It is also polite to remove shoes before entering a private home. When handing someone money or a gift use the right hand or both hands with the exception of paying the bill in a teashop or restaurant.

The Myanmar people are generally very helpful and supportive to foreign tourists without expecting anything in return. However, when their assistance is recognized either with a verbal acknowledgement or monetary gesture they are very appreciative.
