The people who researched this didn't do a very good job though. It's quite easy to find places to stay for around 10,000K (10$)/night in Yangon and Mandalay (dorms) but in every town there'll be a hotel for around 21,000K ($20)/room which you can split with someone. And you only need to pay a government fee for Bagan (20$) and Inlay Lake (10$) though they might get rid of this with the new government.
Myanmar recently stopped charging tourists tourist prices and charging them everything in USD so all the prices quoted in here are wrong. The only currency you need is the Myanmar kyat (pronounced chat) except for the fees for Bagan and Inlay Lake so it helps to have some USD with you but you won't need much. People will gladly accept your USD instead of kyat and many things will be advertised in both USD and kyat but you will get a bad exchange rate and therefore pay much more.
Especially now with the NLD voted into power I would guess that things are going to change even more. If you want info before you go I suggest you use the internet and avoid this guidebook.
