Myanmar's best time of year to travel
Myanmar has three different rainy and rainy seasons: the rainy period from June to September and the cold period from October to February. Myanmar's best time to come is the cooler months of October to February, when the temperature is more temperate and there is little or no rains.
As Myanmar can be very bustling during this time, it is better to schedule your trip in advanced. A trip to Myanmar (Burma) during the warm or humid seasons has the advantage of less tourist and therefore lower-priced. During the rainy period there are short but intense rainfall, especially in the afternoons, which seldom interfere with travel and bring Myanmar's luxuriant scenery to live.
A visit to the Bagan Plains is recommended to prevent the heat of the year or just to spend the mornings and evenings by the swimming pools or in a shady outdoors. Each year from May to September, the seaside resorts stop operating and the number of trips to the area is reduced to prevent rains and tropic wind.
On the basis of the facts given you can choose the time of year you would like to come to our state.
Tailor-Made Myanmar Tours
Drought and high seasons continue throughout January, with first-class travel throughout Myanmar. This is one of the most beloved time to see Myanmar at its best with a clear sky and sunshiny weather. The rivers are still high enough for boating and the Mergui, Kawthaung and Ngapali beach are enjoying horsedream.
Myanmar (Burma) improves further as we start February and the warm and arid climate persists. Ngapali's best days are spent on the beach and the cold begins to come from the higher altitudes during the course of the year. The mountain areas have made up for it, so that the whole land is sunbathing in splendid splash.
In March the temperature gets warm and reaches 32°C, but the temperature in the evenings decreases accordingly. Of course, the disadvantages of good meteorological conditions are the higher number of visitors and the restricted selection of hotel accommodation in some important locations. There is no rain all over Myanmar, and the cold winters in the mountains are a faraway reminder that you can count on good conditions all over Myanmar in March.
Over the course of this months, fluxes will be near the year' s low points, which means that all schedules should be reviewed with caution. April is a very hot season - the temperature can drop above 40°C in some areas - but it is still a favourite time to travel as the crowd flocks into the land as it holds its New Year Thingyan Water Festival in the second half of the months.
If you are interested in a holiday at the Ngapali, Mergui and Kawthaung resorts, you should take sun cream with you, because the sun will shine on the sandy spots and the temperature will rise up to 36°C. In the lowlands, the temperature is 40°C on mean, while even in the high country a mean 30°C is foreseen.
Across the waters the levels are near the year' s low, which means that no cruising schedules are formidable, and we discourage many. By the end of the months, most areas expect colder weather and slight downpours as breeze and rainfall sets in, but the main plateaus just South of Mandalay stay overheated.
Fewer people crowd at this time, making this a very good time of year if you are a fan of a seaside vacation. It is also possible that you can take part in the hotel's low seasons, where the resort will close its doors for the worse weathers in the next few heats.
In Myanmar, June is an open sky and the weather is dropping by one degree, resulting in colder weather and more precipitation, while summers give way to southwest monsoons. The number of visitors continues to fall and the weather is around 30°C, although it can be even warmer in the middle levels just to the south of Mandalay.
Rain showers are more short-lived than a 24-hour showers - especially at the beginning of the week - and should not affect your overall enjoyment. The majority of bathing areas will be shut down by mid-June as they are preparing for the less favorable season.
Wrap your strongest parasol, as this is the humidest rain period. Precipitation begins to hit its high point during the course of the months, with strong rainfall anticipated in much of the countryside as the southwest moon intensifies and the Myanmar coastline's westerly and southerly shores are now overcast.
But the temperature remains high throughout the whole state (? 27 - 30°C on average). It is also the highlight for cruises on the Chindwin River, but roads through the countryside can become more challenging - perhaps even prohibitive in some cases. August, although precipitation is expected to ease towards the end of the months, much of Myanmar is still in the wet and the temperature and air humid.
Myanmar's western and southern coastlines are still sandy and the resort is planked to keep it safe from the great water entering from the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea. Hiking can therefore be very worthwhile and offers great photographic possibilities, as Myanmar's countryside is most scenic at this time of year.
The second half of the months can be favorable if rainfall decreases and temperature drops to the high 20 degrees Celsius. Due to unfavorable climatic factors, the number of tourists in September is very low, so a colder tour and a wider range of accommodations could be just the right thing.
Once again, the main lowlands just south of Mandalay are the warmest and driest area in the land, with low 30 degrees Celsius in the low rain. The end of October will mark the end of the wet seasons with the anticipated hot and arid climate throughout the nation, Myanmar and its seaside resumed opening its gates to travellers.
Off the coastline, the'Big 4' of Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake, as well as most of the other important sights, have great weathers. Waters are high on all watercourses, making it the ideal time to cruise the Upper Ayeyarwady and Chindwin Orcs.
The number of tourists is still low, making it easy to get nice accommodations at a good rate while enjoying the beautiful countryside after the rainfall. The temperature starts to increase in November, the rain period is already becoming a long way off reminder and arid conditions can be seen all over Myanmar this months; wait for the early 30°C in large parts of the state!
Mergui's shores, Ngapali, are back to their best, with fully open and sunny afternoons. Yangon, Inle Lake, Bagan and all other important locations also have outstanding weather in November. November is an perfect time for cruising, especially on the higher Ayeyarwady and Chindwin.
Although not as busily as January to March, this is the beginning of the high seasons and it is recommended to make early bookings to prevent disillusion. December is one of the best seasons to come to Myanmar, as it is relatively cold and arid. Precipitation is unlikely and although it is one of the coldest seasons of the year, especially in the uplands and the spurs, the temperature can still reach maximum 31°C on a mean scale in large parts of the state.
The lowlands and mainland areas are usually characterised by hottest weather and nighttime warmth, while the highland and eastern plains are the least arid with maximum mean temperature of 24°C and require appropriate clothes, especially at the time. Again, the best side of the beach with lots of sunny weather and the cruisers in the upper Ayeyarwaddy and on the Chindwin River see December as a great time.
It is high seasons - the early birds catch the best lodging, so make your reservation early.
