When is the best time to visit Myanmar?

Myanmar has three main seasons: The ‘cool’ season from November to February, the ‘hot’ season from March to May and the ‘rainy’ season from June to October

In the cool and hot seasons, you’re unlikely to experience any rain. The most comfortable and most popular time to visit Myanmar is during the cool season from November to March when you can expect dry, sunny weather with moderate temperatures in most parts of the country.

In the months leading up to the rainy season (March to May) and in the early rainy season (June) you can expect the weather to be very hot and humid, with temperatures in excess of 40°C.

Throughout June, July and August there tends to be heavy downpours almost every afternoon. During these wet months some remote regions become inaccessible and beach resorts such as Ngapali, close due to the high winds and heavy rainfall. By September and October, the rain is less intense and you’re likely to experience more sunshine. The driest regions of the country are the plains surrounding Bagan and Mandalay, which avoid much of the annual rain and remain relatively dry aside from the odd heavy downpour from late May to August.

By end of October or early November the rainy season ends. November to January is a great time to visit Myanmar and you can expect clear blue skies and sunshine once again. After the recent rain the countryside becomes lush and green and the waterfalls are at their most impressive.
