EET 4: Seismic Imaging: A Review of the Techniques, their Principles, Merits and Limitations (MYA)
Join us in Yangon!
On 6 December 2017, EAGE is happy to welcome you to join the learning community and participate this EET 4 in Myanmar. Yangon (formerly known as Rangoon) is the largest city in Myanmar (formerly Burma). A mix of British colonial architecture, modern high-rises and gilded Buddhist pagodas define its skyline. Its famed Shwedagon Paya, a huge, shimmering pagoda complex, draws thousands of pilgrims annually. The city's other notable religious sites include the Botataung and Sule pagodas, both housing Buddhist relics.
Yangon has a tropical monsoon climate under the Köppen climate classification system. The city features a lengthy wet season from May through October where a substantial amount of rainfall is received; and a dry season from November through April, where little rainfall is seen.
While Burmese is the official language, English is widely spoken, especially for business purposes.
The official currency of Myanmar is the Burmese Kyat. Based on xe.com, the exchange rate is approximately USD 1 = MMK1,367.39.
Visa requirements for travel to Myanmar differ from country to country. Please contact the Myanmar Embassy in your country of residence for more information.
