When to Go

Myanmar features three main seasons: the cool season is from October to February, the wet season from June to September and the hot season from March to May. The best time to visit Myanmar is from October to February when the temperatures are cooler with litter rain and moderate. If you plan to visit during this season, please plan your visit well in advance as the country will become extremely busy. The wet and hot season has some advantages as it has fewer tourists and price of services are lower. The wet season with heavy rain mainly in the afternoon will brings Myanmar’s lush landscapes to life. But it’s rarely affect touring around countries.

Here is your guide on what to expect on each region, where and when to visit….
