MyanmarClimate

So when is the best time to visit Myanmar? In truth, it depends upon what you hope to do and how you would like to travel when you are here. It is important to be aware of the different seasons of Myanmar before making any plans.

MyanmarWeather and Seasons

Myanmar has three seasons:

Cool Season (the Winter) - November through to February with average temperatures of 20-25°C (68 -70°F).

Hot Season (the Sumer) - March through to May with average temperatures of 30-35°C (86-95°F).

Wet Season (the Monsoon) - June through to October with average temperatures of 25-30°C (70-86°F).

It is important to note that the climate in Myanmar varies dramatically from place to place: the weather in Yangon on any given day is likely to not be the same as the Bagan weather. Whereas Bago Division and regions further south are some of the wettest areas of the country, Mandalay and the country around Bagan are part of the dry zone, and so receive very little rainfall. Similarly, it is worth bearing in mind that it will always be cooler to the north in the mountains of Chin and Kachin States. In fact the highest peaks of Myanmar can be subject to heavy snowfall. Travellers to even the lowlands of these states are advised to bring warm clothing. The same applies when visiting any of the hill stations in winter.

Most tourists visit Myanmar during the cool season: it is not scorching hot and the skies are clear. Myanmar’s cool season also coincides with most of the country’s pagoda festivals.

Travellers do come to Myanmar outside of the cool season, taking advantage of the cheaper hotel rates and scarcity of other foreigners. If considering coming in these months, it is worth bearing in mind that either the heat and humidity or the rain may compel you to take shelter on a daily basis, and that many off the beaten track destinations such as Putao and the Chin Hills, may be unreachable due to flooding and mountain roads having been washed away by the rain. That being said, Sampan Travel are able to create rich and full-bodied trips anytime of the year.

In truth, there is no one best time to visit Myanmar, as it depends upon each traveller’s hopes and expectations for the trip. If you have more questions in regard to the Myanmar climate throughout the year and how it might affect your journey, please feel free to get in touch.
