When to Visit

Myanmar has a tropical climate and is generally hot year-round; however, the best time to visit is during the dry season, typically from November to February when the temperatures are moderate, and the country is less crowded.

The rainy season, from June to October, brings heavy downpours, especially in the coastal regions. However, if you are not deterred by the monsoon showers, this time possesses its charm too, serving to accentuate Myanmar's lush landscapes and often comes with more affordable travel and accommodation deals.
