Fast Facts

  • Rice

    Rice isn't just a side dish—it is served with every meal in Myanmar, along with a cup of green tea.

  • Hair

    There's a lot of superstition about haircuts in Myanmar. No one gets their hair cut on Mondays, Fridays, or their birthdays.

  • Betel Nuts

    Betel nuts are hugely popular, and people will chew on them all day and into the evening hours. They aren't harmless, though--they stain teeth red and have been linked to oral cancer.

It's heartwarming to know that there are people around who will go above and beyond to provide the care and support right when you need it.
