Expect excellent weather conditions in Myanmar at this time, as it is hot and dry across the whole country. The chance of rain is very low, even in the highlands, where temperatures are the warmest they will be all year. The cities will be dry and not too hot, and the beaches sun-drenched with calm waters. By April, the weather will be very hot.

May - September

The wet season comes to Myanmar mid-May through to September, however there can be some pockets of incredible weather. Temperatures will hover around the mid 20°Cs and even low 30°Cs and humidity will be high in places. The central lowlands around Mandalay are still the warmest and driest part of the country, yet many of the beach resorts will be closed for the wet season.

October - December

Sunny, dry weather returns to all of Myanmar in October, and over the next few months the beaches will re-open, offering fantastic hot temperatures. Expect plenty of clear blue skies, comfortable temperatures and lovely green landscapes just after the wet season.
