ATMs and Foreign Exchange in Mawlamyine
Foreign visitors to Mawlamyine are now able to withdraw money from overseas bank accounts in Mawlamyine from a number of local ATM machines. The AGD Bank ATM on Strand Rd, near the The Mawlamyaing Strand Hotel was one of the first ATMs in Mawlamyine offering this service but now numerous ATM machines are located throughout the city at hospitals and Ocean Mall. Ayerwaddy Bank ATM on Strand Rd near the Breeze Guesthouse is the closest ATM for those staying at the Sandalwood Hotel, Cinderella Hotel, Ngwe Moe Hotel and the Aurora Guteshouse.
There is a 5000 kyat fee charged for each withdrawal as well as your home bank charges, if any.
However, if you still wish to change foreign cash in to Myanmar Kyats, the foreign exchange counter at the Asia Green Development Bank still offers such services. As with normal procedure, you will need to have your passport when changing foreign currency to Myanmar kyat. Note that US Dollar notes must be in pristine condition before they are accepted by local banks. Other foreign currencies that can be changed at the AGD Bank are Singapore Dolars (SGD) and Euros (EUR).
