Climate (Myanmar)

We recommend you check weather conditions before you depart. The region generally has a tropical climate with monsoon rains for part of the year. However, the word ‘monsoon’ should not deter you – travelling during the monsoon can be the most rewarding, with lower tourist numbers and lush growth of the landscape. Usually the monsoon involves a downpour late in the day, which is heavy but short lived. Freak weather conditions could result in delays, changes or in rare cases, cancellations to sections of your itinerary.

Since it is in the tropical region, Myanmar is generally hot and humid though cooler in more mountainous areas. The location and topography of the country generate the “dry and wet monsoon climate” pattern. The best months to travel are October through January when the days are not so hot
