Keep in mind that the Immigration may refuse to deliver a visa at the airport. It is not because you can have it, that you will always have it... (especially if you are not really doing only tourism....) If for any reason the Immigration officer deny you entrance, you have to leave with the same flight.
Request your visa in a Myanmar embassy:
This procedure is still suspended - Mya 2022
This is the "normal" classic way to get your visa.
If you are a national from a country that cannot apply online E-visa, you must go to a Myanmar embassy to get your visa. It is the only way (there is always the visa on arrival procedure for tourist, but it is long and complicated procedure).
A special remark for Myanmar embassy in Bangkok:
you can get a tourist (or business) visa at the Myanmar embassy in Bangkok, either the same day as the request, one day or two days after your request (if you do the same is almost double price than normal).
You need to arrive at 8H30 at the embassy (entrance 9h), with 2 photos ID and all necessary documents if you request a business visa.
You can collect your visa in the afternoon after 13H or 15H.
