When to go
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.
