Best Time To Visit Yangon

Yangon has a tropical monsoonal climate, which means that it’s hot and humid all year round. During winter the temperature of Yangon is still a wonderfully warm 19°C to 33°C, with December and January averaging 25°C during the day.  Another thing to consider if you’re visiting around this time is that the Shwedagon Festival takes place around February or March. A riot of dancing, drama, and tasty food, it celebrates the shimmering gold Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon’s iconic landmark. The dry season in Yangon runs from March to May, and it’s oppressively hot and humid. The hottest month is April when temperatures can get up to 40°C. Visiting during this season, the Thingyan Water Festival offers some relief from the heat. Marking the Buddhist New Year celebrations, it involves people taking to the streets to throw water at each other, symbolizing washing away bad luck from the previous year. Yangon’s location on the south coast means that it gets a lot of rainfall, and the rainy season isn’t the best time for exploring its wealth of outdoor sites. That said, the rainfall tends to occur in short showers, so it’s fairly easy to seek temporary shelter if it rains when you’re out and about. The wettest months are July and August, with August receiving an average rainfall of 24 inches, compared to just 2mm in February.
