Another month of change in Myanmar, as the rainfall starts to subside and temperatures also drop, although they remain in the high 20s and even low 30s°C. September is a class 60/40 month, with a more than average chance of good weather. However if the monsoon winds continue later than expected it can still be wet, especially in the early stages of the month.
Unfavourable weather conditions mean tourist numbers in Myanmar remain very low during September and much of the country is hard to reach by road. Beach resorts, understandably, remain closed.
The central plains to the south of Mandalay are once again the hottest and driest region of the country, with temperatures in the low 30s°C and minimal rainfall.
Good news is on the way: rainfall and temperatures will continue to fall as October approaches.
