August’s weather in detail

Temperatures during August remain high (averaging highs of 27-30°C) however the beaches on Myanmar's west and southern coasts are still closed; with resorts boarded up to protect them from the large waters clattering in from the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea.

Heavy rainfall can make road travel across parts of the country difficult, especially in the more rural and remote areas of the country where roads may be impassable.

Can you still travel in Myanmar in August  Yes, just about. Are there better months to visit? Without question!
