Mingalarbar! Please remember this lovely word. It is the Burmese equivalent of Thailand’s “Sawasdee Krub” and can be used to greet anyone at anytime. Another Burmese word you would find useful would be “JayZuBar,” which means “Thank you!” With these two words, you will find that navigating Burma is a lot more convenient than it seems!
So again, Mingalarbar! Welcome to Myanmar: the land of hospitable locals. You will find that Burmese locals are extremely friendly and will more than likely be willing to help in your times of need! So, take advantage of the sociable nature of the locals and get to know what Myanmar is like through the eyes of its people.
