Peak ( Dec - Mar )

As Christmas approaches, hotels will start filling up and holiday surcharges will spike. From January to March, the weather remains warm and dry, with perfect conditions all over the country. The beaches are full, and the full rivers make it a perfect time for cruises. Book at least 8 months in advance.

Shoulder ( Apr - May , Oct - Nov )

Myanmar celebrates its New Year in April, making it a busy time, but note that temperatures will be in the 40s C right through to May. All activities are on, but crowds are relatively less due to heat and rising humidity. The beaches start opening up in October, and the busy season is starting, so plan ahead for November travel.

Low ( Jun - Sep )

Although it is the rainy season (mid-June onwards), river cruises are still on. The country also erupts into greenery, making it a superb time for photographers. Crowds have thinned out by now, so expect great deals; although beaches will shut shop, it's a great time to trek the lush (albeit wet) interior of the country.
