April's weather in detail

With no rain expected throughout the month and the chilly winter feel in the highlands now a distant memory, you can expect excellent weather across Myanmar in April.

In the south and along the west coast, be sure to pack your sunscreen as the beaches will be basking in sunshine, with temperatures climbing as high as 36°C. In central lowland regions you can expect average highs either side of 40°C, whilst even the highlands are expected to be well on their way to the mid 30s°C.
