what is the earliest time to exchange money at Bagan Airport

We have a weekday flight leaving at 8:20 A.M. What time does the exchange booth open at Bagan Airport? Is it better rate than at Yangon International airport?

Almost same rate in anywhere in Myanmar. Not so different between Yangon and Bagan and Mandalay.

A bit worrying input

"open 24 hours"

The airport is closed down overnight,unless someone can categorically confirm otherwise ?

When Flight start landing to Bagan , you can change money. It is around 7:00 AM. All the counters open by different banks.

In the evening, all close when the flights are no more in Bagan. It is around 6:00 PM.

Can anyone confirm that the money exchange in Bagan still opens pretty much when flights start arriving? I'm arriving in Yangon from Hong Kong very late at night (around 1 AM) and then flying directly to Bagan at 6, arriving at 7:15 AM. I'll need to exchange money into Kyat when I arrive and I'm a bit worried that I'll have no way to do it!
