Bordering Thailand, Myanmar also shares borders with Laos, India, China, Bangladesh and the Bay of Bengal. Thanks to its geographical location in Southeast Asia, travelers can visit Myanmar all year round. However, depending on the type of travel, trips during the rainy season can be arduous and nearly impossible due to increased temperatures. If many roads are closed due to flooding during the rainy season, the country almost dries up during the hot season. Especially central Myanmar is affected by extremely high temperatures, whereas in the far north of Myanmar it is pleasantly warm and in the mountains there is always a cool breeze. From mountain hiking to trekking to beach vacations, there is something for every tourist in Myanmar. Shopping is also the order of the day here and if you want to be culturally active, you can't miss the Buddha statues and temples. With light clothing, this can also be done in this tropical country. In general, there are three seasons in Myanmar. These are determined by the monsoon winds.
Myanmar, formerly Burma/Burma, has a lot to offer to tourists. The huge temple area Bagan is probably the main magnet for all tourists. Besides the quiet dream beach of Ngapali Beach there is for "water fans" still the romantic Inle Lake or the silver beach Ngwe Saung Beach. For divers there are more than 800 small islands with coral reefs in the Mergui Archipelago and for those who prefer it a bit drier, there is an eternally long boat trip from Myitkyina to Mandalay. There is also a cave (Pindaya - place in Shan State) with more than 8000 Buddha figures to admire. Trekking fans get their money's worth at Mount Popa or Kalaw and the absolute trekking paradise is Putao, the highest mountain in the country.
The three seasons in Myanmar (Burma) are:
If you want to travel to Myanmar, you should consider the months from November to February. The humidity is then moderate and the temperatures are then slightly above the good summer temperatures of Germany. Also with rain is to be counted in this time less, as for example June to August, in the rainy season. These months are also not exactly favorable for beach vacationers, because it can fall up to about 5000 mm of precipitation. If you like it a bit greener, you should visit Myanmar in October, when everything is in bloom. If you absolutely want to visit Myanmar in the hot season, you should look for the mountains. There a pleasantly cool breeze blows and the temperatures in the north are pleasantly warm. The official rainy season is from May to October with cool to cold evenings and nights. It gets especially cold in northern as well as central Myanmar. On the coasts in the south of the country there is the southeast monsoon with heavy rainfall. In the months from June to September there are 20 rainy days, but with higher temperatures. The sea is constantly warm all year round.
