need help with several things

Hello. I'm currently in Yangon.

How do I get around the city and to all the point of interest not in walking distance? The only option here seems to be a cab.

Is there any way to book a day trip to some places nearby? Any tours?

And not too many ATMs here, imo. One "money changer" wouldn't take my Dollars...looked "too old". Better chance at banks?

A cab ride around the main sites in the city is only 2000kyat.

DO NOT use changers in the streets under any circumstances,there are Banks downtown.

Walk into any Travel Agent to arrange day tours,many recommended here or why not ask reception at your hotel?

The best way is a cab. For nearby attraction, you may want to contact your hotel reception to get a guide and a cab at hourly basis. Yeah, it is an issue with some old notes, if a money change doesn't accept assume no one will accept. All money changers and banks have to go through Central Bank, so if refused by one, by all too.
