Top 5 Rationale for a Journey to Burma (Myanmar) in the Rains

Elisa, Group Tours Manager, has recently come back from her first visit to Burma (Myanmar). And even though we were out in the mid-raintime with heroin. By following our Burma (Myanmar) blogs (I am sure!), you will have seen Violet's article about why she liked to travel to Burma during the hottest time of the year.

I am not particularly well off when the temperatures rise above 35°C, so I scheduled my Burma tour to begin a few month later, from 7 to 22 July, in the midst of the wet, verdant period that lasts from May to October. But I was mistaken. I thought I would travel through deluge every single rainfall!

I had a great part of my life in Burma. Let me tell you why. Raining can be great pleasure! So I just was in my balloon and felt the rains on my face as I was traversing the sea.

When you go to Burma in the wet it is going to rainstorm sometime, but not every single morning and not all of it. Most of the wet weather in my case was in the town of Yangon. You can get a taxi here if you don't want to run in the cold.

Or, you could stay in the Circle Train for a few hour to observe the crowd while you are waiting for the rains to stop. While I had planned to go to the Shwedagon Lagoon on my second day in Yangon, I quickly modified my plan when the rains ceased the first day and made way for a tranquil sundown.

Joining the natives for their Lenten Buddhist Lenten festivities, I had a great moment to listen to the friars sing, smell and smile as I sunbathed in the gold lights around the pagoda....it seemed as if half of Yangon was in the pit this night - but no sights!

Actually I have seen very few international tourists during my whole journey. Traveling to Burma in the wet seasons means preventing the warmth and moisture of some of the warm winters. There are few disadvantages to go to Burma in the wet seasons, I can assure you. The only reservation I have is that it is not a good moment to come if you plan many trips off the well-trodden paths - it can be hard to cross country streets.

However, if you are a newcomer to Burma and stick to a more beaten track, it has many advantages. When you are looking for your own rain time rain cover and parasol for a journey to Burma, write us.
