The best time to visit Burma

The best time to visit Burma is from November to February during the country’s dry season, when the weather is also not too hot. Early March can also be a good time as most areas are still dry, though there will be fewer tourists as it spells the start of the low season. It can get very hot between April and May, with temperatures reaching 36C in Rangoon (Yangon).

While the monsoon peaks between July and September, this can be one of the best times to take a river cruise itinerary; this is when the water levels are at their highest, and the boat can provide shelter during heavy showers.
