The best time to visit Myanmar
Which is the best time to visit Myanmar? You will be given an idea of when to visit the various areas of Myanmar by our destinations team. Burma really is like a place that'?s froze in time! Ride the powerful Ayeyarwaddy River, balloon across the old Bagan plain, find the wild animal on the elephant's back, or go mountaineering and river-raping, and if you feel like adrenaline, dive in the Mergui Archipelago.
Myanmar's best time to travel is in the middle of October to mid-February, with an annual mean of 20-24°C. A number of areas in high Myanmar have a temperatures between 5-10°C. Although it is raining in Yangon and Inle Lake it is still pleasant to travel in Myanmar during this period, as Mandalay and Bagan are in a rather arid area where it is seldom raining.
Peak heat (summer) is from mid-February to mid-May, with an mean of 30-35°C. Layers (Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Ngapali): Tip: In high seasons it is warmer up to warmer, so wear lightweight clothing, fabric and canvas, with a lightweight cardigan for gentle soirées. From June to September you wear rainwear with umbrellas, jackets and lightweight footwear.
Between December and January, the temperature drops to 15 - 20ºC. Take a hot coat, lightweight pullover and a lightweight woollen hat if you want extra shelter. Upper areas (Inle Lake, Kyaing Tong, Hsipaw, Kalaw, Pyin Oo Lwin): Wear shifts, with a T-shirt for the whole afternoon and a pullover for the evening.
Wear sun cream, sun glasses and walking shoes for long walks. Want to explore Myanmar before the outside World starts planning your visit?
