Myanmar is a region that is considered to have a good climate, not as harsh or as varied as some other countries in Southeast Asia. While Vietnam has started to become cold, this time, Myanmar is in its most beautiful season of the year.

This time, it will occasionally rain but not significant. According to our Myanmar travel experience, it is now the most appropriate time for you to book a Myanmar tour.
Myanmar has three seasons. The fall is from October to February next year. The rainy season is from July to September. Autumn is the best time for Myanmar tourism . In the wet season, in Yangon, it rains both day and night, while in Bangan and Mandalay it is only a little bit rainy. From November to February, visitors to Myanmar are crowded because of the low rainfall and mild weather. In May, July, Sep, very few tourists go to Myanmar. In high season, visitors are crowded and hence the price will be more expensive. If you want to save money, then choose the low season to go.
In the central and northern regions, represented by the capital Naypydaw and the former capital of Mandalay, all year round, there is not much rain and sunshine is very harsh. You will feel it by the way people use to protect their skin from sun: applying sunscreen from thanaka on the face, which is very impressive.
