What to Wear.

Warm weather clothing is quite adequate for most of Myanmar, even in winter time but if you plan to visit the uppermost Northern part of the country, you should consult us or specialised websites (but be aware that the information is not always updated in some cases) as the climate is very specific to this area, which is only accessible to visitors from October to May. 

Around Inle Lake and other high elevation areas, the temperature may drop to reach the zero degree centigrade during the October – February season. Early morning and at sunset, it may get very chilly on the Inle Lake so make sure you have adequate clothing. Trekking trousers or jeans as well as jumper and wind-breaker are recommended for his and similar areas. 

You are host of a country with a strong Buddhist culture and should be sensitive to that. Locals will be grateful if you dress appropriately when visiting religious sites, such as shrines, temples, pagodas etc. Cover your shoulders and avoid excessively short pants; wear easily removable shoes as you can only visit such sites bare-footed.
