Cue March and April where temperatures will rise considerably, especially in central areas in and around the former capital city of Yangon (once known as Rangoon).
The hot weather is a prelude to Burma's monsoon season which takes place from May all the way through the summer months of June, July and August.
Rain tends to fall in the afternoon and early evening with several resorts along the coast, including Ngapali Beach, closing down completely.
September and October are still soggy, particularly in central and southern areas, whilst Mandalay, in the north, will start to see less rain and steadier temperatures.
Some consider November or December the best times to visit Burma however things can get busy and accommodation will get booked up as the rain clouds clear to leave lush green foliage, fast-flowing rivers and cascading waterfalls.
