The best places & times to be in Myanmar
From March to May, the storms in the winter months remain arid (which means that it is still relatively simple to carry by road), but they can be very hot in the northern hemisphere - up to 40°C - but colder in the highlands.
Myanmar's most popular visiting period is the cold period between November and late February, when the rains are less abundant and the temperatures are mild. It is chilly in the early and late mornings and in the evening and hot and sunny in the afternoon without sun.
In general, Myanmar is easily accessible all year round. Although there is monsoons in June, July, August and September during the wet seasons, it does not rain all over the state. The Mandalay and Bagan are arid areas, even in the wet seasons we hardly see any precipitation, while Yangon and the coast areas sometimes experience strong rainfalls for three month.
Burma is a charming and spiritually appealing land, largely unknown to the tourist. It is called the "Golden Land" because of the innumerable palagodas and monasteries that predominate the area. Burma also boasts a multitude of distinctive beauty and historic artefacts including glittering falls, charming seas, dazzling caverns, pristine sandy shores and the thousand-year-old gold coupe that is dotted all over Burma, especially in Bagan and Mandalay.
