T8 salon has a lot of branches in Yangon and Mandalay. They are planing to open a new branch in Hanoi.
Another one is Tony Tun Tun Salon.
They are not necessarily the best salons in town but have their branches inside the shopping centers and in key locations and prices are relatively inexpensive for general customers.
More affluent ppl normally go to Spas even for haircut and blow dry.
Lasource Spas is own by expat and the business establish in Yangon since 20years or so ago.

There's a hughe difference between 30yr and 50 yr. If someone or some companies with large sum of investment in Myanmar, even 70yr is not enough yield on ROI.

GET THE FACTS AND FIGURES RIGHT PPL! It doesn't help to given out wrong infos. Just don't post anything to promote yourself or your business. It's CHEAP!

Current FIL passed on since November 2nd 2012.

Foreigners and foreign companies cannot own real estate and cannot lease it for longer than a year. Depending on the type of enterprise and investment amount, the FIL allows investors to enter into a lease up to 50 years with two ten-year extensions. A longer lease may be available for projects in remote areas.

Hi Macpham,
The answer is no. FYI, Someone I know married to foreign national and have two kids. They were born one year apart 30 years ago in Yangon. Only one of the them become Myanmar Citizen and the other one is Brithish Citizen. Now she wants to change to Myanmar Citizen now but she's not allowed to do so under current law even though she was born here and her father is Myanmar.

You can lease the land to develop as a investor. Check rules & regulations with MIC. The only way to buy the land if you marry to Myanmar national. It will be under the spouse name.

Hi Paisamarma,
No short term lease available in Yangon. The cheapest you can find is YMCA and average of $35/day/person or could be more. The rooms standard are poor.
It seems Nzaramasanga friend will be out of town during the Myanmar water festival. Ask for the pictures of the condo. $30 seems very reasonable. I wouldn't send money a head of time to hold it for your friend. NO OFFENCE TO Nzaramasanga.
Pls remember, timing of your friend visit to Yangon during tourist high season. All accommodation in Yangon will be more expensive than ever. Good luck.
Best regards,
Winston Paing.

$500 is no nearly enough to rent entry level condo in Yagon. That is a low ball offer. You will need minimum of $1500 for your housing. Budget of $2000 will give you more option. Your husband employer knows how expensive the rent cab be and you need to pay one year upfront for the rent.
English is the second language here and much easier to communicate than Thailand and Tunisia ATM. It's not going to be a big deal. Don't worry.

Dear Trish,
Yangon summer is very hot and humid. In Yangon, the rain is torrential and the pavements vanish. The traffic jam is the worst and be prepared for cultural differences.
The Real Fitness and The Balance Fitness is well known but no pool. It will cost $80 to $100/month and pay quarterly in advance. I recommend the American Club. The entire family to join is $600/year plus deposit. Pay yearly in advance for the first year only and they have full size pool. Please google the detail location.
I don't think you will ever ride the bus nor train here. The taxis are everywhere and relatively inexpensive. You must bargain.
There are one cycling group in Yagon formed among expats and not sure about the local participants. There are sizable expats community here and growing. They are very helpful, informative and easy to make friends with. Please explore by joining Inter Nations Website. They arrange monthly networking event in Yangon and going on trips sometimes. It's useful join YECGROUP on Google.
Lots of NGO's and Small and Medium Enterprises and some major Coporations in Yangon now. Depend on your experience and qualification, you will enable to find some job sooner or later. May be teaching job. Lots foreign schools and local own English School.
Real Estate rental is expensive compare to Thailand, Vietnam, Laos etc...
Should you have more question, please don't hesitate to email me at info.aktrealty[at]gmail.com.
Best regards,
Winston Paing

It's not compulsory or customary to add husband's surname to yours after you get married. There will be no legal implications by not doing so or doing do as long as you both signed the marriage certificate in front of two witnesses and endorsed by township court judge.
Many congrats and best of luck.

Exactly Lin Aye Naing... Prices. You can compare the rent or sale prices, Yangon in particular is far more expensive than US in general. Get the facts right. I don't know where u live or what u do for living. I'm real estate business and that's what I do professionally. At least I know what I'm talking about.
I don't post random unintelligent  posts. Ppl who read your post pick up on you. It's quite sad that u r racist and fial to recognize your motherland as Myanmar. Pls don't think I'm Chinese. I'm not!
Please don't take it personally. Have a wonderful day Lin Aye Niaing.

Hmm! How could someone stated 'Buy or rent the house/ condo is the same as US.' 
1. In Myanmar, you need to pay yearly advance payment for rental.
2. In US, you pay one month security deposit and pay monthly rent.

3. Majority Myanmar property owners don't have mortgages and transaction take place in cash usually pay up within 6 months to 2 years. That's including high end property cost $20 mil, 30 mil or more.
4. In US, you get mortage from Banks and pay up for your home within 15 to 30 years is norm.

So please tell me where is the similarity between Myanmar and US when it's come to real estate.
It is important to provide accurate info to someone who need help. If you don't know the subject, it's better to say nothing.

Winston Paing posted on the thread OPEN A TRAVEL AGENCY IN MYANMAR on the Myanmar forum

Diethelm Travel Myanmar has set up their business in Myanmar for a few years already. Look into it. I don't know how true that you need local partner to set up your business here. Time has chaned dramatically and Myanmar government encourage foreign investor to come here and set up their own business with or without local partner.  There are many small, medium and large foreign companies have already set up the offices independently in Myanmar in various sectors.
if I have a chance to find out for you, I will.
