It doesn’t get any better than March in Myanmar, often considered the best time of the year to travel here. The downside to the great weather is of course the tourist numbers, and although not excessive, the limited choice of hotels in key destinations makes it important to book early to avoid disappointment.
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 March.
In the south and along the west coast, the beaches will be basking in sunshine, whilst the chill has lifted off foothills and Shan region. The central plains will also be dry and hot, although more manageable than in the months to come.
On the waterways, the levels are close to the lowest of the year meaning any cruise plans should be carefully considered and we would advise against many. The lower sections of the Ayeyarwady River should continue to be sailable however.
Temperatures in the lowlands average highs of 35°C and even the eastern and northern highlands will be in the low 30s°C.
