Myanmar is usually classified as having a tropical monsoon climate and has three seasons – although roughly half the country lies outside the tropical zone. Its climate is similar to India’s

Raining season is from mid May till mid October with an average temperature of 25-30 C, bringing rain from the Bay of Bengal. Summer is from mid February to mid May with an average temperature of 30-35 C. Temperature can reach 45 C in central Myanmar. Dry and cold season (moderate season) is from mid October till mid February with average temperature of 20-24 C. This is the best time for traveling, although the mountainous regions and the Shan plateau can be chilly and temperature of 5–10 C at this time.

About three-quarters of the country’s annual rainfall occurs during the southwest monsoon season. Rainfall is heaviest in the coastal mountains and also in the north and the east, about 2000-2500 mm a year.

The lowlands, which are inland and sheltered from the direct effect of the southwest monsoon winds, are drier, receiving less than 1000mm of rainfall.
In the lowlands, and particularly on the coast, temperatures are hot throughout the year.

Myanmar can be visited all year round regardless of the seasons. Although during the raining season, it rains in Yangon and Inle Lake, still traveling to Myanmar is still enjoyable because Mandalay and Bagan lies in dry zones where it barely rains.
