Weather & Climate


Coolest time: November to February – Hottest Time: March to May

Wettest time: June to October – Driest Time: December to March

Our favourite time: November to February or July & August

Myanmar has a typical monsoon climate. The hot season is from February to May where temperatures get uncomfortably high and there is little rain, then expect heavy rains from May until October, when temperatures cool down and the climate is drier until February. You can expect considerably more rain in the mountains and coast, while in the central plains near Bagan and Mandalay there is less rainfall.

When is the best time to visit Myanmar?

While the temperatures are the coolest November to February, this means that the most tourists are visiting the country during this time. Especially if you are embarking on a tour that focuses on Bagan, Mandalay and the central plains, you may actually want to visit during the rainy season from June to October. Showers are not as frequent as you would imagine, and often are in the morning, leaving you with the rest of the day to explore. During this time, the central plains are way less crowded than normal and everything is green and fertile, making for especially picturesque landscapes.
