Burma Weather October - Temperatures, Climates
Precipitation is now easier to control and Myanmar is once again opening its gates to travel. Although the coldest part of the year is just around the corner, October is likely to see the high 1920s and even early 1930s frost. Once again, the main lowlands just to the south of Mandalay are the warmest and driest area in the land, with low 30 degrees Celsius and minimum precipitation in October.
Off the coastline, the'Big 4' of Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake as well as most other important sights await good weather. Waters are high on all waterways, which means that cruisers are back on board and it's the ideal season to navigate the Upper Ayeyarwady and Chindwin Orcs.
The month of October is a very low seasons and can be a very good period to come to Myanmar, with a high probability of good weather and fewer tourists than in the following heats. If you move a little bit away from the Big 4 Way standards, you can dive a little further into this varied land and it will pay you ten times as much back.
The Myanmar Explorer route concentrates on some of the less frequented places in the state.
