The rainy season is already becoming a distant memory, and for many November promises the best conditions to visit Myanmar. Visitor numbers are still relatively low and the temperatures more moderate than the early half of the year, but you can nonetheless expect average highs of up to 31°C across much of the country.
In the highlands and foothills of the east, you'll experience average highs of 25°C during November, but temperatures are close to their lowest and warm clothing is required, especially at night and the higher you go. River levels are high after the wet summer months making November an ideal month for cruises, especially on the higher Ayeyarwady and on the Chindwin.
Dry weather is expected across Myanmar this month. The south and west coast beaches are returning to their best, with resorts now fully open and plenty of sunshine expected. Yangon, Inle Lake, Bagan and all the other key destinations are expecting excellent conditions in November.
