When is the monsoon season & Best time to visit Myanmar


Joanna: Greetings from UK! Currently I am planning a vacation to Myanmar, however I cam very oncern with the weather situation in Myanmar, especially after Cyclone Nargis a few yreas ago. I heard that Myanmar has its monsoon season during the middle of the year. When is the exact period of the monsoon season? What other seasons exist in Myanmar and when are they occurring during the year? What is the best time to travel within Myanmar ?


PKTan: Hi Joanna, glad that you are considering Mynamar as your vacation destination, as for the after effects of Cyclone Nargis, most tourist destinations are already been done up. The monsoon season in Myanmar is between early May to late September. The best time to visit Myanmar is actually after the monsoon season around late November to February when the weather is very cooling. If you dragged till March to April, the weather can get very hot, sometimes over 40 deg celcius!

    Hi, our cruise itinerary gives us a choice of overnight to Bagan Temples or day discovering Yangon visiting Shwedagon Pagoda, the reclining Buddha, National Museum and Scott Market. Which tour would you recommend to make the best use of our time in Myanmar? Also can you confirm the rules about footwear in the temple.
    Thanks Ann
