Best Time of Year to Visit Yangon

Learn when is the best time of year to visit Yangon in this Howcast travel video.


The good news is that Yangon is relatively inexpensive to visit, especially when you shop and eat locally, so you don’t need to worry much about whether your trip falls in the off-season. However, you do need to take the weather into account when you plan. Yangon is very warm, and the temperature doesn’t change much throughout the year. Usually highs are in the 80s and 90s while lows are in 60s and 70s, so be prepared for heat no matter which season you visit during. It’s also usually pretty humid, but the monsoon season is from May to October, so you probably want to avoid those months–Yangon’s attractions are a lot easier to enjoy when you’re not getting rained on. The months from November to April are much drier. December and January are the sunniest months, so visit Yangon in the winter to get the most out of your visit. Since the winter is Yangon’s most pleasant season, it’s also the peak of Yangon’s tourist season, so it’s a good idea to book in advance just to make sure you get the flights and hotel rooms you want. If you plan ahead and avoid the worst of the rain, you’re sure to get the most out of your trip to Yangon.
