Lo Ta Ya Web Portal
Why this page (weather, currency, news) is not free?
Only top-page and MPT service menu are free. When you are on the free page, you see free icon on the top of left side.
Where do you get exchange rate from?
We get up-to-date information on exchange rates from the Central Bank of Myanmar.
How often do you update exchange rate?
We synchronize the FOREX information with the Central Bank every 10 minutes.
How do I know if a page is free or not?
You can look at the domain name or URL of the website. If the domain name is .lotayamm.com, then it is charged. If it is still “http://lotayamm.com” or “lotayamm.com” then it is free.
The weather information for my region is not shown. How can I find out?
[Too specific location] Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to determine such specific weather information at the moment. [If correct level but not on list] Thank you for your feedback, we will look into adding this location in the next release, but in the mean time you can check other weather websites.
I showed the FOREX rate on LoTaYa to my money changer but he said the real rate is different.
Please be reassured that the rate we provide is in line with what the Central Bank of Myanmar.
The image for the news article is not loading/stays blurry.

I want to change to a currency (that is not one of the 38). Can I do it from the Portal Site?
Unfortunately, we can only help you convert between the currencies that you can select from. If you require a currency that is not available, you can check the exchange rate on the internet or by asking your local Money Changer.
How is this different from the MPT Application?
MPT application is an App that stays on your phone. You can use it even without data connection, but it can only perform basic functions. Lo Ta Ya is an internet-based portal.
Where do you get news from?
News content comes from either Information Matrix (7 Day Daily) or Yangon Media Group. You can check each individual article’s source by looking at the top right-hand side of the news article (same line as the date).
Where do you get weather information from?
Weather information is provided by World Weather. You can learn more about them http://worldweather.wmo.int/en/home.html

16 times a day (0:00, 4:00, 6:00, 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00, 16:00, 17:00, 18:00, 20:00).
My data/balance is being reduced while I use LotayaMM, what's going on?
You are probably using parts of Lotaya MM that is not on the top/home page. Only the home page is free.
The weather information is wrong!
Weather is constantly changing and we only receive updates our information at certain times of day. Also, weather stations can only tell the weather for certain areas which sometimes mean that the exact weather at your place is not the same at the weather station.
I can't read anything on the Lo Ta Ya website. It is not in Myanmar Language at all!

I want to share the article on Facebook/Pinterest/Twitter/etc.; will I be charged for this?

What is the top/home page?
The Top/Home page is the first page you see when you go to lotayamm.com; it contains the weather, FOREX, and news banners. Viewing this page is completely free, but if you access any features such as news, data charges will apply.
