Single Female on Own in Yangon

I am on my own for a few days in Yangon.

a. should I prebook a taxi to pick me up at the airport (suggestions for taxis) or

get a taxi at the airport (are they safe?....how do I know they are authorized taxis)

b. I have a full day to travel the city. I want to see the synagogue there. Any specific recommendations of guides. I see the price is usually for 2 or more.

c. Is it safe to be out at night on my own?

a)

airport taxis are safe for single women. Book your taxi at the kiosk just inside Arrivals. They will tell you the price,escort you to the cab and you pay the driver direct.

I felt safe at night, however, I didn't stray too far from lighted areas, just because I am afraid of getting lost or tripping with no one around to help me!

I just spent 3 months in Asia as a solo female traveler, and felt safest in Myanmar, including in the cities. Yes, very safe. And locals will go out of their way to help you!
