How to get to Myanmar?
Yangon and Mandalay by having international airports are the main points of entry for international tourists. There are a few border crossings with Thailand and China, allowing more adventurous travellers to combine their trip to Myanmar with other countries. Border crossings with India and Bangladesh are restricted and require an official government permit.
What is the best way to get around Myanmar?
Poor and overstretched infrastructure and a sizable country make air transportation the most convenient and quickest way to move around. For shorter distances or places where flights are not available, private air-conditioned car is also a reliable option. For luxury travellers, multi-day river cruises are the most comfortable way to visit the highlights of the country.
When is the best time to visit Myanmar?
The best time to visit Myanmar is between October and March during the dry season and while the temperatures are lower. September turns the country green and is usually dry enough to make a pleasant trip. Monsoon season starts in late May and lasts until September however, some parts of Myanmar, particularly Bagan and Mandalay are relatively dry with short, heavy showers and can be visited throughout the year. A growing number of tourists chooses to travel during the raining season when the country is greener, hotel rooms are available and while there is a lower number of visitors at the main attractions.
Do I need visa to travel to Myanmar?
All foreign nationals (bar a few ASEAN countries) require a visa to visit Myanmar. Note that your passport must be valid for at least six months from your proposed date of arrival. Tourist visa typically lasts for 28 days from the date of entry. The government has recently introduced a tourist e-visa system, allowing visitors to apply for a visa online.
