Climate

Generally, the climate in Myanmar is hot and humid for most of the year, although it is cooler in mountain areas and around the Inle Lake area (Taunggyi, Nyaungshwe, Kalaw) and in old Hill Station towns such as Pyin U Lwin.

Coolest months: November to February (less than 20 degrees Celsius at night and early morning, and around 30 degrees during the day). During these months, the whole country is cooler, and also more colourful festivals are celebrated. We can say that this is the ideal period for visitors.

Hottest months: March to June (it can be around 30 to 35 degrees Celsius). If you visit Myanmar during this period, it may be too hot to visit some outdoor sites around midday, thus it’s best to visit places early in the morning and later in the afternoon. Towns in Central Myanmar such as Mandalay, Monywa , Pakkoku, and Bagan will be the hottest . However, the good points to visiting Myanmar during the hot season is that it is less overrun with tour groups, plus room rates and air fares are cheaper compared to the high season (November to February).

Monsoon season:  July to the end of September or early October. If you are flexible and not in a hurry (and have no problem sitting and chatting, or gazing at the surroundings while waiting out the rain), travel during the rainy season is not much different during the rest of the year. Just a bit wetter! Actually, it’s very rare that it rains all day long; usually it will rain for a few minutes and then stop. Obviously, this is not a good time of year for anyone who wants to visit the beaches, but for those visiting the rural regions of Myanmar, the rainy season can be quite picturesque. Thanks to all the rain, the countryside scenery and rice fields are a beautiful shade of green.  Be sure, however, to come prepared for the weather and bring an umbrella (or two!), along with a raincoat or poncho.
