Can you connect to the Internet in Myanmar (Burma)?

By on April 3, 2015 in Myanmar/Burma, Travel Tip with 0 Comments

This is interesting question…. the short answer is, yes you can. However… I found that I could easily connect to the Internet on my phone, although it was terribly slow. 3G coverage was available, and was fairly good in the cities and suburbs. The ‘roaming’ deal I had with my phone company was pretty poor […]

No such thing as free WiFi… and security… aka WiFi on the road

By on April 2, 2015 in Travel Tip with 0 Comments

A few years ago when you were travelling ‘free’ WiFi spots were few and far between, and you would be lucky to find one (unless travelling in the US where they seem alarmingly open at times – things have changed a bit in the US, but you can still find some open WiFi). These days […]

Yangon (Rangoon) International Airport (RGN), Yangon, Myanmar (Burma)

Back at Yangon International Airport (RGN) for a flight to KL. Bags scanned before checkin, and I am unable to check them to my final destination. That is going to make the connection at KL very tight as I need to collect bags and then check back in. 5:30 am is not a good time […]

Feel Myanmar Food, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma)

Feel Myanmar Food is crazy but fun. Having eaten there, I am still not too sure how it works. You seem to order at a buffet by selecting the dish you want. A waiter standing next to the buffet takes an order, and then you get a table (don’t try and sit down first – […]

Hotel Mandalay, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma)

I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Mandalay, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma) as it provided a great base from which to explore the town. Admittedly the hotel is not very central (I actually never did find the ‘centre’ of town, unless you count the palace), but it provided a good base from which to start. My room was […]

Penang International Airport (PEN) – off to KL…

By on March 23, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

I’m at Penang International Airport (PEN) waiting for a flight to KL, where I will be spending the night in something called a ‘nap room’. Could prove to be interesting. PEN is not too bad as airports go. There are plenty of places to eat before security and after. McDonalds appears to be offering free […]

Eastin Hotel, Bayan Lepas, Penang, Malaysia

I stayed at the Eastin Hotel in Penang, Malaysia, for three days and it turned out to be a very nice hotel, in a very odd location. The hotel is too far from the centre of George Town to be a tourist hotel, and too far from the airport to be an airport hotel, and […]

More on the WiFi at the RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

By on March 15, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

It appears that at the RH you need a WiFi code for each device you wish to connect, and for each WiFi hotspot you wish to connect to… This is not exactly very convenient. I now have a code for my phone and laptop, and I can only use the phone in the lobby, and […]

Not on the WiFi at RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

By on March 14, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

Well, it looks like I spoke too soon (see Finally on the WiFi at RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak). As soon as I left the manager in the lobby and moved to another part of the hotel, the WiFi stopped working, and my phone would not connect to the Internet. It would connect to the hot […]

Finally on the WiFi at RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak

I ended up speaking to the manage at the RH Hotel and he told me how to get on the WiFi. Get the manager to restart the system. Turn off cellular data on your phone. Restart your phone. Select the WiFi hotspot with the strongest signal. Using your browser go to http://1.1.1.1 When the page […]
