Rainfall begins to peak as the month progresses, with heavy rains expected throughout much of the country as the south-western monsoon increases in intensity. Temperatures remain high across the country (averaging highs of 27 - 30°C), but rainfall is also high.
The beaches on Myanmar's west and southern coast are now firmly closed, and any intrepid travellers making their way there in the absence of flights will find shelter from the large seas hard to come by. Heavy rainfall means road travel across rural parts of the country can become more difficult - in a few more extreme cases perhaps impossible.
The central plains to the south of Mandalay remain the hottest and driest region of the country, with temperatures still in the low to mid 30s°C and rainfall relatively minimal. Travel is still possible, however we suggest sticking to the main city and key tourist destinations where the infrastructure is better embedded.
