Daily expenses in Ngapali, Myanmar #1
We arrived in Ngapali on October 16th. It took me some time to adapt myself to the new environment but I think now it’s getting better and better ðŸ™‚ For this blog post, I’m gonna breakdown our daily expenses from October 24th to October 30th. We’re not paying any rent because we work in a hostel in exchange for free accommodation ðŸ™‚
Conversion rate: K 1,400 = 1â‚¬
If it’s your first time reading one of my blog post, here’s a quick heads up:
My boyfriend, Davidson and I, left Paris on June 15th for a 6month trip in Asia. We had enough savings until September. So yeah, it’s risky but we took the leap anyway.
So far, we’re not bankrupt yet!
October 24^{th}

 Lunch: K 5,200 I’ll call this restaurant the restaurant at the junction of the main road in Ngapali because the name is only in Burmese.
 Top up Ooredo: K 5,000 the previous week, I bought one Ooredo sim card for K 1,000. This topup is for 1Go of data.
