Burma (Myanmar) Weather & best travel season for Myanmar (Burma)
The year-round high temperatures are an Myanmar symbol. Like in many South East Asia lands, Myanmar has two different times of the year, the arid and the soppy. Drought begins from October to May, when it is chilly at nights and in some places at high altitudes. During the rainy season from May to September, when the monsoons arrive and the land rains heavily.
Temperatures fluctuate throughout the year. It is the gold standard that it is always colder in the spurs and seas than at the sea and in the flat. In March and June the warmest season is over 40°C with high air humid. Once the tsunami begins to rain, the streets to the countryside are closed, making it necessary to take an eavesdropper or canopy.
During November the month of the year the monsoons disappear, the weather gets colder, a cosy breeze blows and the sky is clear. The best period to visit Myanmar between November and February is when it has the least rainfall and the weather is not too warm (27°C mean temperature). But it is also the high season for visitors.
Looking at October instead, one can experience an unforeseen, rewarding journey - the climate at that period is still good and colder than in the hot summers with fewer crowds of overcrowds. When it comes to packing, it is often advisable to take a sweater or wool for the evening all year round.

Burma has a three-season monthly moonshine. As a rule, the wet season is from May to October and gives way to the drier, colder conditions from October to February. Its coastline and hills see significantly more precipitation than the drier middle plain, which includes Mandalay and Bagan, and streets in these areas can become inaccessible during the wet season.
The best period is from November to February. During the rain season a lightweight raincover or parasol is required. Warm clothing is recommended for the colder seasons and on some nights, especially in undulating areas, on ferry boats or on excursions on Inle Lake. It is approximately diamond-shaped - with a long southeast "tail" - and stretches 925 km (575 miles) from east to west and 2,100 km (1,300 miles) from the north to the south. 925 km (575 miles) is the length of Myanmar.
They are bordered to the south by the Indian Ocean, the eastern by China, Laos and Thailand, to the northeast by Bangladesh and India and to the nw. and sud. Irrawaddy River flows through the center of the land and forms a deltas on the southern shore; Yangon is located next to one of its many estuaries.
Just off the northern side of the deltas are the Irawaddy Plain and the dry plain of Centrally Myanmar, sheltered by a horse shoe of hills that rise above 3,000mt. The Arakan and Chin, Naga and Patkai Hills lie to the western side, the Kachin Hills to the northern side and the Shan Plateau stretching to the Tenasserim coasts to the eastern side.
Intense irrigation agriculture is carried out throughout the whole of Centrally Myanmar, and fruits, veggies and lemon fruits flourish on the Shan Plateau. A large part of the country and hills is sub-tropical, although this cover has been diminished by large deforestation, especially of tea wood.
