Travel to Myanmar

Myanmar has three distinct seasons. From November to February it is dry and cool, so it becomes the best time to get to know it. From March to May, the temperature can sometimes exceed 40 degrees until the rainy season begins in May, and lasts until the end of October. The beach season is from October to March, with stable temperatures in the lower 30s.

If you decide to travel to Myanmar you should wear comfortable and casual clothes . Bring something warm if you are going to travel to hill areas. Dress modestly and do not wear shorts or tank tops when visiting religious buildings, such as temples. It is customary to remove your shoes before entering a private home.

Burmese cuisine is itself a reflection of the diversity of the country. A typical Burmese meal can be found in different places in a wide variety of small plates. Fish, seafood, curry, salads and rice are the best dishes you can have. Hingyo, a soup, as well as ngapiye, a fermented fish paste, accompany most meals .
